Plums with Goat Cheese and Walnuts

Well, it’s August and that means that the market is full of plums! This makes me happy for a variety of reasons, not least of which is the fact that many of our local farms offer a smaller variety of plum that comes with red and yellow skin. I don’t know the name of this variety, but J’s mom got super excited when she saw them because they are just like the plums she would eat on holiday in France. These little guys are super sweet and delicious and when I’m not eating them on their own, my favorite way to prepare them is this recipe for Plums with Goat Cheese and Walnuts.

This recipes is stupid-simple. There is no cooking, and minimal prep work. I like to purchase my goat cheese already crumbled and my walnuts already chopped because I’m lazy like that. I was also super excited to find a lovely local Blueberry Honey (which is basically just a mild local honey) from the same farmer that provided these gorgeous plums. I hate that this might sound snobby but don’t you just love buying local?

But this is one of those minimalist mixtures where you throw a few things together and they just sign in perfect harmony. You have the sweet/tart juicy plums with the earthy, tang of the goat cheese, the crunch of the walnuts and a subtle sweetness from a light drizzle of honey. You guys, I seriously had to stop taking photos because I was dying to dive right into that gorgeous plate. I would be embarrassed by my complete lack of self-control, but I’ve decided I’m not. Because yum. Go make this now and you’ll understand.

    August 11, 2015 at 8:56 pm This sounds RIGHT up my alley. I do actually LOVE buying local and my life is ruined because my favorite farmer's market right by our house is only open Thursdays 10-3 and I look forward to going all school year and now school starts Monday and I didn't go ONCE this summer and just typing that makes me want to cry. Last year was amazing because it goes on until November and I went every week on maternity leave. I want a maternity leave every year. But not a newborn.
