Stone Fruit Salad

3 large plums
4 small peaches or nectarines
4 scallions
3 large radishes
1 red bell pepper
1 inch ginger
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. avocado oil (or other neutral oil)
1 tsp. sweetener (honey, coconut sugar, agave, maple syrup)
1 tsp. curry powder
1 clove garlic
Kosher salt & black pepper

First, break down your fruit, pepper, and radishes and add to a large bowl. I used a mandolin with large julienne teeth – this was good, but the plums got a bit pulpy; you may want to just thinly slice everything (resulting in more texture). Thinly slice the scallions and add to the bowl. Hit with a generous pinch salt and a few cracks black pepper. Toss.

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, curry powder, ginger (grated), and garlic (grated). Add the dressing to the salad and toss to combine. Hit with another shot of salt and pepper.

I made this salad several hours before serving to allow the flavors a chance to marry a bit.

Makes a big bowl – enough to take to a cookout.
