My favorite types of salads in the past couple years have had three things: a fruit, a cheese and a nut. Add a homemade dressing and you've just made one of the most basic, boring food items into a treat.
My past salads have included my take on the wine country salad, salad with strawberries, feta and walnuts, salad with strawberries and parmesan, and salad with watermelon and feta. This week, I gave a new fruit a whirl: blackberries.
I combined an herb mix of greens with blackberries, feta and glazed walnuts.
My citrus dressing (which was really a perfect complement to the salad, btw) was:
- 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of orange juice
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- salt and pepper
- drops of lemon juice to taste
