Mixed Greens with Pluots, Slivered Almonds and Bacon

I bought the most delicious Dapple Dandy Pluots this week at the store. I can honestly say that I don’t think I have ever had one before. I must go back and get more. They are delightful. The flavor is mostly like a plum, but the texture is firmer. Well, you’ll just have to try one if you haven’t. They are gorgeous inside and out–a lovely speckled peel and the stunning pink and red flesh.

So juicy and perfect paired with the bitter greens, crunchy almonds, and creamy poppyseed dressing. Oh–and the bacon. Mmm. I love a bit of crumbled bacon on my salads. (Not too much, just a bit.)

Mixed Greens with Pluots, Almonds, and Bacon
2-4 servings

1 bag or tub of organic mixed greens
2-3 ripe, but firm pluots, sliced
4-5 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup slivered almonds (toasted or untoasted)
Poppyseed dressing (we like Brianna’s or homemade)

Toss together and serve.

p.s. Thanks again for your encouraging words. I’ve been doing much better.

  1. This is making me salivate in a good healthy way, not in the usual “I ate a donut while walking through the grocery store because I can’t handle going past the bakery case without stopping” kind of way.

  2. I just bought pluots for the first time the other day too and wish I still had some so I could try this salad. My girls devoured them quickly.
    Love the photos- so glad you are back!

  4. Great post Lindsey!! I love pluots. I think they are my absolute favourite fruit of all time. I especially love the deep purple ones with the pink flesh. So sweet and juicy! Your salad looks lovely! I send hugs and love! xxoo

  5. I have never had a Pluto! My mother in law makes the best salad with the brianna’s poppyseed dressing, I should send it to you…It has sundried tom, feta, pine nuts, pasta, it is so good.

  6. Hi Lindsey! Looks delicious! I discovered your blog while you were taking a break and am so happy to see that you’re back at.
