Blackberry and Walnut Salad

It is finally warming up here. The trees have budded and the lily of the valleys are poking their little bells up through the leaves. I am craving raw food instead of cooked food (yes, it changes with the seasons). Blackberries were on sale at my local market and I bought a couple of boxes! Blackberries go beautifully with walnuts but what really makes this salad is the Lime Ginger Vinaigrette with Shallot. It balances out the flavors beautifully and is is literally bursting with spring time flavor.

    this looks great, most of the time my salad dressing is simply lime juice and olive oil, but I add fresh herbs like basil too sometimes. lately though I’ve been throwing in a bit of finely chopped ginger, it’s excellent…

    so it’s fun to see all of this in your recipe..

    I have all these blackberries but never thought to make a salad with them. Thanks for the great idea! 🙂

    Lovely salad. I’m moving into the season of salad myself. I WILL be trying this. I love all of the ingredients. I think I spied out some wild blackberry vines a few days ago. Those berries will be ripe soon. 🙂
