It’s kind of hard to know what to do with plums, other than just bite into them whole.

Unlike other fruits like apples, there aren’t millions of recipes that explain millions of ways to cook with them, from savory salads and soups to sweet crisps, pies, and crumbles.

This recipe takes a little bit of the mystery away. Make it once and you’ll know plums pair really well with pecans, mint, and feta. Hey, it’s a start.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon 100% pomegranate juice

1 teaspoon grapeseed oil

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon fresh mint, finely chopped

2 cups baby spinach

1 ripe medium plum, cut into 1 inch pieces

2 tablespoons (1 ounce) feta cheese

2 tablespoons pecans, chopped

1 tablespoon raisins

1 tablespoon red onion, finely chopped

 

Directions

  1. Combine pomegranate juice, oil, vinegar, and mint in small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place spinach, plum, cheese, pecans, raisins, and onion in medium bowl; toss with reserved dressing.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Everyone knows spinach is a dark, leafy nutrient powerhouse, and pomegranate juice and pecans add even more antioxidant power. And this salad is a heavyweight when it comes to flavor, too: Sweet plums pair perfectly with salty feta, and the pecans provide a satisfying crunch.
