Spinach & Strawberry Salad with Blackberry Dressing
I want to share a secret tip with you. Don’t buy berry salad dressings because they are so easy to make at home!!
All you need is 1 part olive oil, 2 parts acid such as balsamic, wine, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice.
Add a pinch of salt and pepper and your favorite fruit jams!
I used Blackberry jam which is my favorite fruit spread, but you can use raspberry, grape or even orange marmalade!
Don’t be afraid to experiment and add your favorite seasoning and spices! Enjoy!
Don’t throw away your jelly jars when they’re all finished and have only a small amount of jelly at the bottom.
Just mix in the ingredients to make a vinaigrette right into the jar, shake and pour over your salad!
2 cups Baby Spinach
2 cups of your favorite lettuce
1 slice of your favorite cheese
2 slices of low fat deli turkey (optional)
Crumbed blue cheese
Ingredients for Blackberry Salad Dressing
1 teaspoon Blackberry Jam

Mix all the dressing ingredients very well until smooth and creamy with a fork. Taste and add more salt if needed.
Gently pour the dressing evenly over the salad with a teaspoon to your desired amount.
