Blackberry Walnut Salad with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette

For whatever reason blackberries are cheap this month. Also, it is the middle of January and almost 70 degrees on the Front Range of Colorado. These two items combined made me think of summer. So I grilled up some pork chops and made this light refreshing salad that I usually have in the summer. Enjoy this and dream of summer days that are still are long way off.
