Mixed Greens with Plums and Parmesan Cheese
Salads at The Kitchen are supersimple and always made to order. This particular salad features sweet Elephant Heart plums, known for their brownish skin and extremely juicy ruby-red flesh. Hugo Matheson buys his Elephant Hearts in season from Rancho Durazno in western Colorado, tossing slices of the fruit with greens and Parmesan. He saves the juices that drip out of the plums when they're cut to whisk into the dressing.
