Blackberry Walnut Feta Salad
I love that blackberries are wild and pop up around the DC area. There are a few bushes not far from our apartment... though there are usually only enough for a passing snack and not to pick and take home. These are big ones from a pick your own farm and they are delicious. Candied walnuts are great - I remember the smell of them in Downtown Crossing in the freezing Boston winter, but they do almost as well in a summer setting and give a satisfying sweet crunch. The recipe is a strange one, but good for light summer dinners and eating up your delicious blackberries in a way that is not pie. That is not to say I could ever have enough blackberry pie, but one must have consideration for others who must dine in the same household.
