Blackberry-Basil Vinaigrette

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Melissa Spangler

This is a great way to use fresh blackberries when they are in season. So very good! Serve over gourmet mixed greens with slices of avocado, mangos, fresh strawberries, pink grapefruit, blackberries & purple onions. From 2004 Southern Living Annual Recipes.

This is simply fabulous! It may be my favorite salad dressing of all time, seriously. I made it as written except I only used 1/4 cup of oil and 1/4 cup of water, rather than 3/4 cup of oil. We had it over a salad of baby spinach, avocado, red onion, cucumber, cherries, and grilled chicken. Yum! My partner said it was the best salad we've had all year--and we eat a LOT of salads, so that's saying something! Thanks for posting! I'm already thinking of other fruit and herb combinations to try!
