Enjoy these simple flavours – beautifully put together! Sliced South African Songold plums are served on a salad of rocket and baby spinach leaves with sliced buffalo mozzarella and Parma ham. Yum!

Prep 15 minutes, cooking 2 minutes
Serves 4

4 handfuls baby spinach leaves
80g bag rocket
​500g South African Songold (yellow) plums, pitted and sliced
2 x 70g packs Parma ham
2 x 125g packs buffalo mozzarella, sliced
50g pine nuts
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of salt, sugar and freshly ground black pepper
Basil leaves, to garnish 

Share the spinach and rocket between 4 large plates. Scatter the Songold plums on top.

Arrange the Parma ham and mozzarella cheese on the salads.

Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan for 2-3 minutes, shaking the pan, or stirring with a wooden spoon to make sure they don’t burn.

Mix together the balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and season with a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salads and serve scattered with the pine nuts and basil leaves.

Cook’s tip: Songold plums and mozzarella cheese make for a very happy marriage! Try melting some mozzarella cheese on toasted rustic-style bread, and top with a few Songold plums lightly sizzled in a little butter with a pinch of sugar. Heaven!
