Blackberry dressing

During the summer, we often eat salad. It's fast, it's easy, and (most importantly) it doesn't require heating up our entire apartment by turning on the oven.

This salad features spinach, tomatoes, grapefruit, and leftover black rice. It was very good, but if I make it again, I think I will use a mellower citrus; the grapefruit was a bit overpowering for me. I topped it with a home made blackberry dressing.

Blackberry dressing

  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil (If you would prefer the berry flavor to be more prominent than the sesame, go for plain sesame oil instead of toasted.)

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor.

I also eat a lot of salads during summer. I love all the different colours and tastes in there.
