Blackberry Walnut Salad
My blackberries are in abundance right now and they are so big, plump and sweet! I have just been eating them as a snack and putting them in my yogurt....but I decided to make a delicious summer salad tonight with them and I added walnuts and feta cheese. I made a quick and easy blackberry vinaigrette to drizzle on top. Man, was this good! This salad is a unique and refreshing way to enjoy those beautiful blackberries that are ripe for the pickin' right now!
Here's what you need: ( 4 salads )
4 cups mixed baby greens ( I added arugula)
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup to 1 cup blackberries
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
1/2 cup blackberries
2 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
2 t honey
Assemble the salads by placing the greens in bowls, and top with the blackberries, feta, walnuts, and mint. Place the ingredients for the dressing in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Drizzle the dressing evenly over the salads. YUM!
