Fresh Plum Cucumber Salad


6-8 firm, sweet red or black plums, cut into slices. No need to peel.
1 large or 2 medium small cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced
½ small sweet white onion, sliced thinly
1 C loosely packed chopped Italian parsley


2 T mild oil, like canola or sunflower
3 T red wine vinegar
3 T honey*
Salt and pepper


  • Combine all salad ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Whisk all ingredients for dressing and dress salad about 5 minutes before serving. To wilt the ingredients add dressing and chill for a couple of hours.
  • I found I wanted to drizzle 2 Table spoons more honey over the top before serving for a perfect sweet/savory note.
