My friend Jenni of The Gingered Whisk – fellow Daring Baker, Sourdough Surpriser, and all around awesome lady – just recently had a baby girl, and back in the summer she asked me to write a guest post for her while she takes some time off from blogging to settle into life as a momma of two. I was honoured to be asked, and sent her a summery recipe for a salad made with blackberries, basil, and corn (if you think that’s a weird combination, just trust me on this one!). If I’d been thinking ahead, I would have written about something a little more fall-oriented (given that the baby wasn’t born until September) rather than something celebrating the wonders of late summer produce, because now that the recipe is live on Jenni’s blog, corn and basil and blackberries are – sadly – just a sweet summer memory. But this is a salad that you MUST make, so please, bookmark the recipe for next summer – it’s a killer flavour combination! Head over to The Gingered Whisk for my guest post and the full recipe and to congratulate Jenni on the bun that was nine months in the baking!
