This was great! I made a salad for a get together with some friends....drizzled the dressing o mixed greens, with some goat cheese, thinly sliced red onion and toasted walnuts.

½ (10oz) jar seedless blackberry preserves
¼ c red wine vinegar (I used balsamic)
6 fresh basil leaves
1 garlic clove, sliced
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. seasoned pepper
¾ c. vegetable oil (I used about 1/2 c olive oil instead to try to lighten it up)

Pulse preserves and vinegar; add next 4 ingredients. With blender running, add oil slowly. Process until smooth.
