Hello everyone! How are you?
Summer Salad Ideas
I will keep it super short today as I am trying to have three posts this week. While I did enjoy the lilac series (And I certainty hope you did too), I wasn’t able to post as many salad and bruschetta ideas as I normally do in summer. So I am trying to catch up a bit! As I announced earlier, rose-infused and lavender ideas are set to be next! That’s right, lavender recipes. After quite a long time without posting lavender creations, I will be back with them. Who is excited?
Anyway, most salad ideas you will see this summer feature quite simple flavour combinations. And I think that’s great. While I love creating some sophisticated salad every now and then, we also need simple recipes, right? If your are looking for more interesting ideas, you could check this Quinoa Peach Lavender Salad, Cherry Prosciutto Scallop Salad, or this Peach Hamon Salad with Daiquiri Dressing (Yes, with rum!)
Blackberry Prosciutto Salad
Previously I shared another simple idea, Strawberry Mozzarella Salad. Now it’s rime for this Blackberry Prosciutto Salad. There’s something beautiful in this combination, don’t you think so? It’s simple yet quite elegant, luscious, and utterly delicious. Indeed, how can anyone resist the combination of sweet blackberries and salty prosciutto? Daisy must have been hunting outside, otherwise she would not have been able to resist, either haha!
Also, toasted almonds and pungent goat’s cheese add different textures to this salad. As always with salads, options are endless! Don’t have blackberries? Strawberries, raspberries, cherries, pears, or peaches would be an excellent substitutions. You can use any other nuts or cheese of you choice, too. Think of feta or shaved parmesan. Or maybe even some crumbled blue cheese – why not?
This salad is quite juicy (To our liking) that doesn’t require any dressing. However, a little drizzle (just a few drops!) of olive oil, honey, or lemon juice (or together) won’t hurt.
I hope you like this Blackberry Prosciutto Salad, and you will it a try soon! If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Blackberry Prosciutto SaladCourse: Salads, Appetizers, Main
2 cups of leafy greens of your choice (such as arugula, spinach, watercress, kale, etc.)
1 cup fresh blackberries
4-5 slices of prosciutto, torn
1/4 cup almond, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
2-3 tbsp. of goat’s cheese
Optional additions: olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, honey
- Just simply toss all ingredients in a bowl and divide between serving plates. If you want to use any additional dressage (olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic, honey, etc.), simply whisk it quickly and then drizzle it over the salad. Serve right away. Enjoy!
- To my liking, this salad is juicy enough and doesn’t need a dressing. However, you can always add a little bit (Perhaps, just about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon.) That simply can be olive oil, lemon (lime) juice, honey (maple syrup), and balsamic vinegar – any of them or in combination.
- Possible options: use strawberries, raspberries, peaches, cherries, pears in place of blackberries; feta, parmesan, smoked cheddar, or blue cheese instead of goat’s cheese; any other nuts of your choice (Pistachios would be especially good!)
