Blackberry, Feta and Mint Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette


  • greens of choice
  • fresh blackberries
  • 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


  1. Whisk together all vinagrette ingredients until well-blended.
  2. Toss with arugula, mint, and blackberries–just enough to lightly coat the greens. Serve topped with crumbled cheese and almonds.
