Stove Top

Ingredients

2
black plums, halved, pitted, chopped
1/2 c
extra-virgin olive oil
4 tsp
plum vinegar or red wine vinegar
kosher salt
black pepper, freshly ground
12 c
mixed greens, lightly packed (such as arugula and frisee)
4
nectarines, halved, pitted, cut into eighths
8 oz
firm blue cheese, sliced
1/2 c
almonds
3/4 c
water
2 Tbsp
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bring plums and 3/4 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer, stirring occasionally and mashing the plums with the back of a spoon, until plums have completely broken down, about 15 minutes.
2
Pour plum mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a small bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much puree as possible; discard solids in sieve. Let puree cool.
3
Add oil, vinegar, and 2 tablespoons water to the puree; whisk to blend. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper. (Dressing can be made 1 week ahead. Cover and chill)
4
Divide the greens among plates. Scatter nectarines, cheese, and almonds over, dividing equally, and drizzle some of the dressing over. Season with salt and pepper.
