Blackberries, blueberries and cherries are ready to pick here in Michigan. We have 10 pounds of blueberries already in our freezer. We prefer the blackberries fresh so when we received two pints in our CSA share we were excited. I let the kids eat one pint right away and saved the other for our dinner salad.
This salad is great because if you want to bulk it up a bit for a dinner salad you could easily add some chicken, steak or shrimp to it.
We love spinach and feta salads so adding blackberries and a lightly sweet vinaigrette to the salad could only make it better and I was right! It was super yummy. Any tricks that I can use to get the kids to scoop up the raw spinach I am going to try.
Both kids ate two servings of salad before we even ate dinner! Yes! I am going to try this again with chicken for a dinner.
