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.

Greens with Blackberries and Passionfruit Vinaigrette Recipe

The Salad:

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:

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:

Toss in some raw nuts or if you want to make it extra special, caramelized nuts…watch a video tutorial here:) That white pan you see is a ceramic pan, non stick and non toxic!
