Greens with Basil and Blackberry Dressing Recipe

If you are looking for the most delicious salad ever, then stop, because the search is over.

This recipe is loaded with bright colors and flavors, bringing together plenty of health-promoting antioxidants found in blackberries, basil, and salad greens. Just be sure to follow the tossing instructions found below to make this salad the experience that it should be.


8 cups of organic salad greens (romaine lettuce is best)
1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
Handful of fresh basil leaves
2/3 cup fresh blackberries (or thawed from frozen)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and pepper, to taste


Place all ingredients except for the organic salad greens into a blender or food processor and blend until well homogenized. Transfer dressing into a glass bottle and refrigerate.

Just before serving, pour dressing over salad greens in a large bowl. Pour only a small amount at a time as you toss the greens with your hands. Tossing with your hands is the best way to ensure that all of the greens receive a light coat of this delicious dressing. Taste the greens as you toss to ensure that you do not use too much dressing.

If available, try adding some chopped tomatoes and mango pieces for added flavor, nutritional value, and color.

Enjoy this delicious recipe for salad greens with basil and blackberry dressing.

This was excellent! I love anything with blackberries and this was no exception. Finally..
something healthy that tastes SO good. Thank you for sharing this with your readers. This recipe will encourage me to eat salad more often!

The dressing was wonderful. I used the frozen blackberries, and
added avacado, strawberries and mango, and it was a wonderful combination of tastes.
