Stick in your thumb


Plums are the BSI (blogger secret ingredient) hosted by Lauren at Healthy . Delicious and believe it or not this idea popped in my head immediately.



Why wouldnt a 'carpaccio' of plums with lime zest extra virgin olive oil and home made blue cheese taste stupendous? Fruit and cheese are born to go together! (as for the blue cheese, the smaller one needed 'testing' and the test came out positive)



The recipe is more of a preparation and its oh so simple: Thin slices of plum arranged as you like them with little chunks of blue cheese scattered about then its all drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lime.



How simple is that? I submit this as my entry to BSI: Plums.

Stunning! It looks like it might even belong on the cruise buffet ... yet tastes far better I'm sure. Love it!

Angie's Recipes said...

I think I would eat those plums as an appetizer...

Lovely presentation...and the pix look very good, as always...

Christo, are you a trained chef? I wonder what's your profession?
And you still haven't figured out how to add the code?

Beautiful presentation! Very nice entry!

Cucinista said...

As has been said before, a beautiful dish . I'm glad I missed this week's BSI because I certainly could not have competed.

JennyMac said...

What gorgeous presentation! Love this idea.

Jamie said...

Wow! Isn't simple always the best? And so European :-) to serve the fruitiest fruit with cheese and this combo is amazing! Beautiful, too.

angie: Good to hear that...I am not a 'trained' chef and as for profession - well I have been putting 'self employed artist' since 1978...does that help?

snugs: is that a good thing or a bad thing?

ungourmet: thanks

cucinista: but the nice thing about BSI is that its a participation thing more than a contest - I am sure you would have made a great dish!

jennymac: thanks and I raise a glass to your birthday...

jamie: how very 'continental' of you to say that..thanks

buffalodick said...

I've got to use the special word today(I only use it once in a while!) "elegant"....
Grew up in a neighborhood with a few plum trees- they taste better if you steal them!

Miakoda said...

I don't know how I could have missed this last year except I think I was on vacation. Thanks for leaving the comment on my nectarine tart post and giving me the chance to find this. I think there is a plum tart in my future, based on your beautiful plum carpaccio dish.

linda: this was also published in a carribean life magazine this january - it created a little stir when I first did it...
