Grilled Stone Fruit Salad
8 plums, mix of red and yellow
2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
1 lemon, zest only
1 small orange, zest and juice
½ cup (125 ml) shaved Pecorino cheese
¼ cup (60 ml) chopped toasted hazelnuts
salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat barbecue to medium-high. Halve plums and remove pits. Grease barbecue and grill plums, flesh side down, for 1 minute, until grill marks are achieved but plums are not cooked through. Remove from heat and cut each half into 3 wedges.
- In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, lemon zest and orange zest and juice. Pour over plums and top with Pecorino and hazelnuts. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve right away or chill for up to an hour. If making in advance, refrain from adding cheese and nuts until right before serving.
