Padma Lakshmi likes using yuzu (a sour Asian citrus fruit) in the vinaigrette for this salad, a simple but bold combination of spinach, basil and juicy plums. Yuzu can be hard to find, so a mix of lemon juice and lime zest is equally good here. Finishing the salad with flakes of sea salt gives it a nice unexpected crunch.    Terrific Green Salads  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon and orange juices, the vinegar and the orange and lime zests. Season lightly with sea salt and black pepper.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, toss the spinach, basil and plums. Add the dressing and toss well. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper (so there are flakes clinging to the leaves) and serve right away.
