1/2 (10-ounce) jar seedless blackberry preserves
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
6 fresh basil leaves
1 garlic clove, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper
3/4 cup canola oil

Combine salad greens, mango, strawberries, blackberries, avocado and red onion in a large salad bowl. Using a blend, combine blackberry preserves, vinegar, basil, garlic, salt and seasoned pepper. Then slowly stream in the canola oil.

Toss the dressing with the salad and serve. Perfect!
