Double Plum-Arugula Salad

Posted by Kari Spikkeland in Recipes

This salad was a perfect shake-up to my otherwise very routine salad. I don't often use radicchio, but here, its slight bitterness is paired perfectly with the sweet plums and Willapa Pluvius cheese. After reading this article about the leafy green, I plan on using it more frequently. Enjoy!

Double Plum-Arugula Salad

1lb firm ripe plums
2 Tbsp extra-virigin olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp minced shallot
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
5oz baby arugula
1 small head radicchio, cored & shredded
1/4 lb dried plums, quartered
3 Tbsp toasted pine nuts
1.4 lb Willapa Pluvius cheese, crumbled


Pit fresh plums and cut into small wedges. In blender, puree 1/4 of the plum wedges with olive oil, vinegar, shallot, thyme, salt & pepper. Thin with a little water if needed. 

In a large salad bowl, season arugula and radicchio with salt and pepper, then toss with the fresh plums and pine nuts. Drizzle with dressing, garnish with the dried plum pieces and crumbled cheese. 

Try it this weekend with a grilled meat main...it won't disappoint!
