PLUM SALAD

December 25, 2016

A plum is a fruit of the subgenus Prunus of the genus Prunus. The subgenus is distinguished from other subgenera (peaches, cherries, bird cherries, etc.) in the shoots having terminal bud and solitary side buds (not clustered), the flowers in groups of one to five together on short stems, and the fruit having a groove running down one side and a smooth stone (or pit).

 

 

Plum Salad Recipe

 

INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon grated lime zest
Coarse sea salt, preferably red
Coarsely crushed black pepper
Two 5-ounce bags baby spinach
2 cups basil leaves, torn
2 black or red plums—halved, pitted and thinly sliced

 

METHOD
1 In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon and orange juices, the vinegar and the orange and lime zests. Season lightly with sea salt and black pepper.

 

2 In a large bowl, toss the spinach, basil and plums. Add the dressing and toss well. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper (so there are flakes clinging to the leaves) and serve right away.
