Bloody Mary Harmony Board

Since April is coming to an end, this is also the last post about Easter 2019. Here are photos of the Easter Harmony Board and Bloody Mary Board which I created, along with my table setting. Plus a simple recipe for the second salad I served for Easter. HERE is a link to the first salad.

Easter Harmony Board

Plum and Parmesan Salad

  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 ½  tablespoons honey
  • 1/2  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ripe red and/or black plums
  • 1/3 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • Sea salt, (I prefer Maldon)

Whisk vinegar, honey, and black pepper in a medium bowl until honey is incorporated. Slowly drizzle the olive oil while whisking until it all comes together.

Cut the plums in half, remove the pits, then thinly slice and add to the bowl of dressing. Toss to coat. Just before serving, add the Parmesan and gently toss, taste and season with sea salt, as desired.  The salad may not need any salad due to the saltiness of the cheese.

Serves 6

Linda, I have always loved your classes because I just love your flavor range. This salad sound great. And you always teach us great tricks while cooking. Some to save time but most for better flavor.
