Green Salad with Rotisserie Chicken and Blackberry Dressing

Green Salad with Rotisserie Chicken and Blackberry Dressing

Serves 4

Sweet and tart summer blackberries make the most delicious dressing for simple greens. Thawed, frozen blackberries can also be used, but keep in mind that they won't yield the same fresh flavor and texture.

  • 1 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

Put half the blackberries into a large bowl and mash with a whisk or wooden spoon until they lose their shape and release their juice; stir in vinegar. Drizzle oil into blackberry mixture in a thin stream while whisking constantly to make a dressing; season with salt and pepper.

Add salad greens, romaine and cucumbers to bowl with dressing and toss gently to coat. Arrange salad on plates and top with chicken and remaining blackberries. Drizzle with any dressing left in the bowl and serve.
