That’s all there is to this plum tomato and ricotta salad! It’s so quick and easy to prepare, but so delicious and works excellently as part of a BBQ spread. Salty, sweet, vinegar – what more could you want from one easy dish!

I’m pretty lucky that my blogiversary coincides with my mum having an excess of plums on her trees so there’s always delicious produce for me to play with. In fact, there’s usually more than we can get through so it’s handy I’m building up a list of plum recipes!
