Blackberry Balsamic Dressing: a delicious versatile dressing made with rich, syrupy balsamic vinegar and sweet blackberries with a touch of tamari soy sauce. Use fresh or frozen blackberries. Keto, Paleo and Vegan.
This Keto Blackberry Balsamic Dressing is bound to become one of your go-to recipes once you try it!
It's a rich, tangy dressing that will perk up any salad. A touch of tamari soy sauce (or coconut aminos) increases the depth of flavour. This dressing is definitely one you won't forget. And it's suitable for keto, paleo and vegan diets, too.
This Blackberry Balsamic Dressing is great on salads or grilled meats, drizzled on goat cheese, or even ice cream. It's easy to make in a blender. No cooking required!
While I like to make it with fresh-picked wild blackberries, you can easily use store-bought berries or frozen blackberries to make this simple blackberry vinaigrette.

Like your dressings spicier? Add a little heat! Try adding ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper or dried red pepper flakes to this blackberry balsamic dressing recipe for a little flavour kick.
If you'd like this dressing a little thinner, add a few tablespoons of water, one at a time until you get the consistency you prefer.
