Your salad will never be the same with this easy to make Blackberry Vinaigrette. It uses fresh berries and provides great flavor!
How does a salad recipe sound to you?? It's been awhile since I've shared one and I think you will really enjoy this Berry Brie Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette. It's quick and easy! While the salad is loaded with fresh berries, spring greens and brie cheese, the real star of the show is the homemade salad dressing and that comes together in no time!
Do you want to know the secret ingredient? It's seedless blackberry preserves. I really thought I had some blackberries at home when I decided to make my own dressing but alas they were gone out of the fridge and maybe I ate them - I don't remember! The jam made for a good substitute!
You might have noticed that I didn't list the amount of salad ingredients. I think it just depends on what you need - we used the dressing on 2 salads and still had a good amount of dressing leftover. This should keep well for about a week in your refrigerator.
And if you like salads - here is one you might enjoy!!

Oh, I LOVE that you made this vinaigrette with preserves. So smart! I made a raspberry vin with fresh raspberries one time, and honestly, I wasn't a fan. It was just too tart, and too watery. Preserves would take care of both of these issues! Thanks for the great idea, Deb!
