While I do partake in delicious sweets almost daily — okay, daily — I make sure to fill the rest of my diet with a plethora of nutrient rich foods.
Did you know the blackberries are the number one most nutrient dense fruit!? On the planet!? Number one!
Eat more blackberries, my friends.
This vinaigrette is incredibly tasty and will make any salad addictive!
And guess what? It’s also delicious to marinated chicken in. We’re talking, really, really delicious!
You might even find yourself filling a small bowl with it, and dipping veggies into it, or a nice toasty piece of crusty bread.

- 1-1/4 cup fresh blackberries
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2-1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
Add the everything except the oil to a small saucepan and place it over low heat.
Stirring a bit, cook just to dissolve the sugar and warm the mixture, about 3 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and use the back of a fork to slightly macerate the blackberries. (I like keeping them partially intact.)
Gradually whisk in the oil and blend until it's completely emulsified.
