This summer plum salad and lamb's lettuce is quick to prepare and ideal for lunch. Finish the salad with a simple dressing of lemon juice and honey.
Fresh plums are in abundance during the summer, and now let this sweet fruit be perfect for a quick salad.
The dressing for this salad is made with lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. The fresh sour taste makes the dressing a delicious counterpart to the sweet fruits.
By the way, my honey mustard dressing is also very tasty with this plum salad.
Plums - fresh plums have a fresh sweet flavor that goes perfectly with the lamb's lettuce and spinach.
Don't have plums but would like to make this salad? Then replace them with apricot or peaches.
Lamb's lettuce - lamb's lettuce is one of my favorite types of lettuce. It is not too strong in flavor and goes well with ingredients like melon and mozzarella.
If you also love lamb's lettuce you should definitely give my melon and prosciutto salad a try.
Lemon juice - lemon juice gives a fruity and fresh taste to the dressing. For best results, do use fresh juice and not lemon juice from a bottle.
Balsamic vinegar - balsamic vinegar gives a deep flavor to the dressing and provides some extra color. You could also substitute it with red wine vinegar.
This recipe is ideal as a light lunch or side dish, but there are many other variations. Add some grains like lentils or quinoa, for example, to make a whole-meal salad.
Prefer it to be entirely vegan? Replace the honey with maple syrup!
Cheese such as mozzarella, cottage cheese, brie, and feta are also delicious with this salad!
Parma ham or prosciutto is also very tasty in this salad.
Don't like a thin dressing or vinaigrette? Then try my balsamic dressing.
To make this salad with plums, all you need is a large bowl, a knife, tablespoons, and a small bowl.
You can store the salad in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days.
I do recommend that you clean the plums and cucumbers only at the last minute to prevent them from drying out.
The lemon dressing will keep a little longer.
In fact, properly sealed, you can keep it in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
Be sure to shake or stir the dressing before serving to mix all the ingredients.
