Ina's Blackberry Vinaigrette Dressing

This recipe is my first official guest post. It comes from a Canadian Reader, Ina. Ina is a dear woman who has shared with me some killer recipes. This one is so fast and easy and so gourmet it leaves me breathless. It is the kind of recipe you serve to your non-believer friends. You know the ones I mean, the ones who pull a sour face when they find out you are on a restrictive diet, the ones who say, "I am soooo sorry", and you can't wait to show them what you do eat.

Ina also says this can be made with any kind of berry. Thanks Ina!

Ina's Blackberry Vinaigrette

1 c. fresh or frozen blackberries
2 T. honey
1 garlic clove, minced
4 tsp. Dijon mustard
3 T. Red Wine vinegar
3/4 - 1 c. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/8 tsp. xanthan gum (omit for SCD)

Place blackberries and honey in a saucepan on low heat. Mash with a fork while the mixture is heating up. Once it has come to a simmer remove from heat. Mash through a strainer into a glass jar.

Add remaining ingredients and shake well. Adjust seasonings to taste.
