So as you know, I am trying to savor the fruits of summer, before they disappear. This is a recipe for a Spinach & Blackberry Salad. You can use blueberries or strawberries or mandarin oranges if you like.
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup feta cheese
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
sliced red onion (about 1/4 cup)
1 bag fresh spinach – rinsed and torn
1 oz package of blackberries cleaned
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
Mix together the olive oil, both vinegars, sugar, worcestershire sauce and pepper. Can I just say, that the olive oil and vinegars make a great dipping sauce.
I like to put everything in a mason jar and shake it up.
Chill for at least an hour or so. Prepare the spinach, onion, blackberries, feta cheese and top with almonds. This dressing is a little bit sweet, so it goes great with spinach and fruit. Serves about 4 and can be doubled.
Hope you enjoy it! What is your favorite fruit on a leafy salad?
