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.
sliced red onion (about 1/4 cup)
1 bag fresh spinach – rinsed and torn
1 oz package of blackberries cleaned
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1/4 cup feta cheese
Simple Viniagrette Dressing
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
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, by the way.
I like to put everything in a mason jar and shake it up.
Chill for at least an hour or so. This dressing is great on any spinach or field greens salad.
Now, back to the salad.
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?
