Raspberry vinaigrette is one of my favorite salad dressings. When I came across this post with a home made blackberry vinaigrette I bookmarked it to try later. I remembered this salad when I saw the blackberries at the farmers market on the weekend. I just used the salad greens that I had on hand and some prosciutto and goats cheese that were in the fridge. This made for a tasty and summery salad. I really enjoyed the blackberry vinaigrette.
In general I have liked making my own salad dressing this summer. They are fresh and I know exactly what is in them. I can make them exactly as I like modifying them each time until they are just right. One of the biggest benefits is that I can make the dressing in individual servings. This way I can make a different dressing the next day and not have to finish an entire bottle before moving on to a new dressing.
Blackberry Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette
- 1 serving lettuce greens
- 3 slices prosciutto (torn)
- 1 ounce goats cheese (crumbled)
- 1 handful blackberries
- 3 blackberries

- salt and pepper to taste
- Assemble the salad with the lettuce, prosciutto, goats cheese and blackberries.
- Mash the blackberries in a small bowl and remove any large chunks.
- Mix the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey into the mashed blackberries.
- Pour the dressing onto the salad and top with salt and pepper to taste.

goat cheese, blackberries, mmm, looks delicious. I often use blackberry or raspberry vinaigrette when I make a chicken livers salad.

hmm….yum yum .. blackberries. We 2 bucketful of blackberries recently and my daughter was happily eating away and demand every now and then that her grandma feed her … hehehe … she even went and grab some for herself -not even afraid of the nasty thorns. 😉
Oh Kevin! That salad is gorgeous! It must have been so delicious 🙂
Those blackberries are gorgeous! I, too, love to make my own dressing. It’s a great way to get creative!
That is one beautiful salad! I have a wonderful recipe for Raspberry Vinaigrette, but last time I made it I made a triple batch so I could give some away, then dropped it all on my kitchen floor. I’m afraid to make it again.

Such a pretty salad! Blackberries aren’t in season yet, so I feel very jealous… 😉
