In the past few weeks I have seen some delicious berry vinaigrettes. Raspberry-Honey Jalapeño and Sunny Honey Vinaigrette to name a couple of my favorites. Plus Chris’ blog has so many delicious recipes, you cannot just like one thing. I must have 89 recipes pinned on Pinterest from her blog alone.
My Mom and I had picked some of my blackberries one day. We had picked quite a few and we both found things to do with them. Ice cream topping, muffins, pies. Still I had more to pick soon. Would you look at the size of these blackberries! And yes guys, that is my hand and not a child’s hand…lol!
I was able to pick some more a week or two later and really wanted to make a blackberry vinaigrette. I was almost craving it.
I had a couple friends over last Saturday and instead of cooking we had pizza and salad takeout. I did make the blackberry vinaigrette though because I was craving it. It went over well, they liked it and so did I. In fact, I enjoyed it for the next 3 days as well!
Blackberries are most likely still available to you, especially my southern friends. I would highly recommend making this dressing. It was so refreshing, so tasty and for some of us, that last hold we have on summer 🙂
I looked up recipes and within a few tries, came up with my own. Feel free to add less or more of any ingredient. I had fun coming up with this and will make it again…next year. My berries are all done. Salute to summer!

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1 t. Dijon mustard
