Fruit with a Twist


This was wonderful. It tasted completely different from what you were expecting (but then again, maybe I didn't know what to expect), but it was so good.

Plum-Fennel Salad with Honey-Ginger Dressing


1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 1/2 teaspoons honey

1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated peeled ginger, divided
Pinch of kosher salt
3 large red plums, cut into thin wedges
1/2 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced
Olive oil, toasted sesame seeds, and fennel fronds (for serving)


Whisk orange juice, vinegar, honey, 1 tsp. ginger, and salt in a medium bowl. Add plums and fennel to dressing; toss to coat.

Cover and chill 30 minutes to allow fennel to soften and flavors to meld.

Toss remaining 1/2 tsp. ginger into fruit salad. Serve drizzled with oil and topped with sesame seeds and fennel fronds.

Recipe notes: Slightly underripe plums? Add a touch more honey.

Notes: Again, this was really great. The different flavors together worked surprisingly well.
