Blackberry Nectarine Salad

IMG_1626Hi friends– It happens every year– I wait for the first little handful of boysenberries to come ripe and this was the week!  The temptation is to pick them them too soon–still pinkish and not really sweet.  But finally there were enough ready to toss into a salad with some sweet nectarines and salty pistachios and here it is:

2 cups leaf lettuce torn in bits
2 cups arugula
1 large ripe nectarine, sliced
1 cup boysenberries (or any blackberries)
1/3 cup pistachios
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
salt & fresh pepper to taste

Layer the greens, nectarine and berries.  Sprinkle on the pistachios.  Shake together the oil, vinegar, sugar and salt & pepper in a container with a tight lid to emulsify it all.  Pour on the dressing just before you are ready to serve it up.

3 or 4 servings.
