Tomato and Plum Salad, with homemade vinaigrette


20 min





About the Recipe

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month, I decided to #Gopurple with my menu and bring awareness and advocacy to those with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. Plums are considered to have very important benefits in cognitive health. Plums reduce inflammation in neurological areas improving the ability to learn and remember information. So ...#eatplums!


3 plums (pitted)
3 tomatoes (corded, in different colors)
½ purple onion
Bunch of chives (or scallions)
For Vinaigrette:
3 tbsp of olive oil
Juice from ½ lemon
1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp of maple syrup
Salt and pepper


Step 1

Start with the vinaigrette. In a jar mix all the ingredients, close the jar and shake it well. Set a side.

Step 2

Wash the plums and tomatoes and let dry them. Take the peeled onion and slice it thinly. Dried vegetables, cut into wedges. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing ball, and gently using salad spoons (or big table spoons) mix them together.

Step 3

Take the vinaigrette and shake it one more time before pouring it on the salad.
Transfer the salad onto a serving dish, and sprinkle with the chopped chives.
