Peach Blackberry Salad with Blackberry-Basil Vinaigrette

For best results, prepare the vinaigrette the day before serving to give the flavors time to fully develop.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: n/a
 Serves 4

Vinaigrette Ingredients:

½ c. extra virgin olive oil
¼ c. champagne vinegar
1 t. Dijon mustard
3 T. honey, preferably local
4-5 large blackberries, rinsed
1 T. fresh basil, roughly chopped
 Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


2 c. baby spinach
2 c. baby arugula
2 large ripe peaches, sliced
1 c. blackberries, washed and patted dry
½ c. walnuts, roughly chopped
4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
 Fresh basil sprigs, for garnish


  1. Add the olive oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, blackberries, and basil to a food processor container. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and process on high until thoroughly emulsified. Taste and add additional honey, salt, and/or black pepper, if desired. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  2. Add the spinach and arugula to a large bowl and toss to combine. Transfer to a serving platter and top with sliced peach, fresh blackberries, walnuts, and goat cheese.
