How to Make Nectarine and Blue Cheese Salad with Plum Vinaigre


  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.
