plum salad

Do you mix and match your salad ingredients? Grains and fruits and vegetables. Greens. Nuts and seeds. Dried fruits. And dressings.

Recently I bought some nice plums and was thinking about how we could have them fresh, but not out of hand or in a typical fruit salad.

I decided on cucumber and plum.

Then a little olive oil drizzled and a few drops of balsamic vinegar sprinkled over top. A few seeds for some texture and a finger-sprinkling of salt.

Ta-daa! A different salad with plums.
