Blackberry Salad with Brie Cheese, Almonds and Cranberries

Blackberry Salad with Brie Cheese, Almonds and Cranberries

 

 

A wonderful combination of fresh lettuce, brie cheese, blackberries, diced apple, slivered almonds and dried cranberries, drizzled with a fantastic blackberry vinaigrette.  The cheese, fruits and nuts are always pretty delectable together, and the blackberry vinaigrette ties the whole flavors together with a slight sweet-citrus touch - a real comforting salad that hits a multiple of texture combinations. I hope you do give this recipe a try and enjoy it as we do.
