Blackberry Vinaigrette Recipe


About 3/4 cups blackberry “juice”/puree ($1)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar ($.30)
1/3 cup olive oil ($.60)
1 Tablespoon sugar or desired sweetener ($.01)
Salt and pepper to taste


Blend about 1 1/2 cup blackberries until a juice or puree forms.  Pour in 1/4 cup of water while blending if necessary, to form the puree.

Place the pureed blackberries into a strainer and stir around and press until the juice falls through.

And you’re just left with the pulp.

Take the strained juice and add it to a plastic container with lid that you can shake vigorously.  Add the vinegar, olive oil, sweetener and some salt and pepper.

Shake. Vigorously. And then pour.

And enjoy over top of a simple salad.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups of dressing.

Cost $1.91

    yum! am looking for a different version of salad dressing/chicken salad! I hope it is sweet but not sugary sickeningly sweet. :)

    I’m a huge Balsamic vinegar lover, so that’s what I’m going to use in the Blackberry Vinaigrette recipe!

    Do you think you can make this with Strawberries? I have a ton and trying to figure out what to do with them! :)

    This is a little off topic, but I was wondering what blender you have. I’m thinking of buying vitamix or a blendtec later this year, but can’t decide which one. I noticed your blender is square, which could be either. Whichever it is that you own, do you like it, are there drawbacks, etc. I just hate to spend that much money without doing my research first. Thanks!!

    I made this dressing (mine is much darker and inkier). Very nice on a salad of romaine lettuce, chopped apricots and shredded cheese. It paired nicely with pasta alfredo and cut the creamy-tasting sauce. Thanks!

    I used balsamic and honey… poured over a bed of mixed greens, strawberries, a few almonds and topped it with a few thin slices of parmesan reggianno… excellent! The flavors blended very well… I think crumbled feta might work nicely as well. Healthy and great taste… you can’t ask for more than that.

    This actually works great for a chicken grill sauce. Use it to finish your chicken on the grill just like you would use a bbq sauce.
