I must admit, I’m not a fan of salads!
Whether I’ve eaten sensibly or not, I always crave carb-loaded meals. I have a big appetite!
I do occasionally feel like a salad though. My favourite salads are those eaten on holidays, usually in Turkey where the salad vegetables are super tasty and fresh.
Back home, when I do have a salad, it needs to be special!
This fits the bill, I love plums because they’re so versatile and I love the tart flavour.
This recipe makes the most of in-season rocket, and early-season plums. With added salty feta to balance the tart plums and peppery rocket.
I served this with the plums slightly warm and not long out of the oven (so had to photograph it really quickly before the leaves wilted!).
It could easily be served cold though. Just a quick note on serving the plums cold, my first batch used coconut oil, and I have also read butter is recommended for roasting plums. The only issue with this is they both solidify when cold. So absolutely only use oil, I used olive oil but if you wanted to use another vegetable oil that would be fine.
