Blackberries are an often overlooked berry. They are higher in age fighting and health promoting antioxidants than many berries and are quite delicious in their own right. I love to eat them alone. add them to oatmeal, ice cream, or toss them in salads…especially this one: Greens with Blackberries and Passionfruit Vinaigrette!

The salad itself is very simple: greens, berries, caramelized nuts, soft goat cheese and avocado. It’s the dressing that really takes this salad to the next level.
The Passionfruit Vinaigrette and a Lemon Vinaigrette Option:
This light, beautiful dressing is the perfect compliment to the fresh, ripe berries and creamy goat cheese in this salad. You can find the A’L Olivier Passionfruit Vinegar at fine gourmet stores, or have it delivered to your door by clicking here. BUT I also offer a lemon vinaigrette for those that don’t necessarily want to order a special vinegar, but I have to say….it’s amazing, you should definitely try it.
The Caramelized Nuts:
Put It All Together!
Toss those greens, fresh berries, salty feta, sweet pecans, avocado and homemade vinaigrette together and voila! A gorgeous seasonal salad with fresh that everyone will be clamoring for!
