Blackberry, Feta and Mint Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette
greens of choice
fresh mint, slivered
crumbled feta or good goat cheese
slivered or sliced almonds or chopped macadamia nuts, toasted
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice (I often use half and half)
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and a few grinds of the pepper mill
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Whisk together all vinagrette ingredients until well-blended.
Toss with arugula, mint, and blackberries–just enough to lightly coat the greens. Serve topped with crumbled cheese and almonds.
