Season/ Summer

Prep time: 15 minutes

Serves 4



4 heirloom tomatoes

4 plums, organic, save juice and extra plum for vinaigrette

6 oz goat cheese, or ricotta

1 tbs sherry vinegar

1/2 tsp sea salt

dash of fresh ground pepper

1/2 tsp lemon zest, organic

6 mint leaves, chiffonade

1 tsp thyme



Slice tomatoes thinly. Slice plums thin as well.

When you hit the pit, turn plum to continue slicing. Do this into a bowl, and reserve the juice and bits of plum from each of them. This will be the base of the vinaigrette.


Lay sliced plums in a circular pattern. Lay tomatoes on top in the same circular way. Crumble or pipe goat cheese on top.


Vinaigrette : Remove any skins from the extra plums. Add sherry vinegar, salt, pepper, thyme leaves and lemon zest to the plum juice. With an immersion blender or small food processor , blend until all ingredients come together. Taste for seasoning.


Drizzle vinaigrette around and on top of tomatoes and plums. Sprinkle mint on top and serve,


Cooks note: This is best served room temperature.
