Romaine, Sweet Corn & Blueberry Salad

Three days before official moving day, with a lot of packing left to do, and fighting rising temperatures in the city, we wanted to eat whatever would not produce extra dishes.  Leftover lasagna from the freezer served with a fresh salad fit the bill: a slightly unusual combination of blueberries and sweet corn make this salad interesting and cool.  I added a handful of trail mix (cashews, almonds, raisins, sunflower seeds) at the last minute.

Combine half a head of romaine (enough bite size pieces for two) with 1/3 cup of fresh blueberries and 1/3 cup of fresh corn (cooked and cut off the cobb, and cooled).  Toss in your favourite vinaigrette (some crushed garlic is a great addition). Add a handful of nuts, raisins and seeds too.
