Valentine’s Day Starter: Blackberry Salad

greens-with-blackberry-dressing croppedIf you’re looking for a way to make your meal elegant and still cancer-preventive, blackberries are an ideal choice. Our recipe for Baby Greens with Blackberry Vinaigrette is a perfect starter for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner.
All berries contain cancer-preventing polyphenol phytochemicals. In this recipe, blackberries’ sweet-tart taste blends well with contrasting shallots and Dijon mustard in the dressing. Our recipe also puts some whole berries into the salad for an attractive combination with the salad’s greens, goat cheese and walnuts.
Blackberries may seem expensive, but if you compare them with a bag of far less nutritious chips, you get more health benefits from berries for the same cost. They have few calories and provide fiber, vitamins and phytochemicals.
