Blackberry Vinaigrette



  1. Place balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and minced garlic in a bowl.
  2. Let stand for 10 minutes. This will bring out the full flavor of the garlic.
  3. Add sugar, blackberry jam, salt and pepper to the garlic mixture. Whisk to incorporate.
  4. Slowly pour olive oil into the bowl; whisking as you pour. This method will allow the ingredients to mesh together and make a smooth, well-incorporated salad dressing.


Serve over salad greens (see my Red Leaf Lettuce and Spinach Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette recipe).

Add croutons if you like.

Note: You can substitute seedless boysenberry or seedless raspberry jam for the blackberry jam.
