Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette

A few weeks ago I shared about a friend’s gift of blackberries,  which I turned into Blackberry Fool.  Well, I also froze the remaining berries. which I’ve just defrosted.  What did I make ?   Blackberry Vinaigrette.  You know, during the summer I eat alot of salads and I’m always on the lookout for  some different ideas.  This vinaigrette combines blackberries, white balsamic vinegar and honey – delicious!

I served the vinaigrette with a salad of mixed greens, spinach, salmon, almonds and honey-goat cheese.  ( btw – this is a fabulous roasted salmon recipe).  It would be terrific with grilled chicken as well.  Hmmm – I bet it would be an awesome marinade too.
