I make a lot of salads with fruits during the summer months, and definitely this prune plum salad is one of my most faves. Just before flying back to Japan, plums were coming close to the end of season and super cheap like $0.99/lb in Vancouver, so I had to take this opportunity, because I knew that I wouldn’t see the mountain of plums – everything is smaller and neatly packed in Japan.

Here’s the ingredients:

  • Prune Plums (not too riped ones)
  • Cherry Tomatos
  • Parsley
  • Olives (generous amount, mince some and slice the rest, so it sticks well with plums and look nice on the plate.)
  • Garlic

Dressing:

  • Lemon juice
  • EVO
  • S & P
  • Anchovy
  • Maple Syrup (yeah Canada, eh!)

Prune Plums in Japan is much sweeter, so might as well just omit Maple Syrup. Also a store brought French Vinaigrette works too! 🙂
