Today I stumbled upon a delicious farmer’s market in midtown Manhattan. There were tables full of fresh fruits and vegetables, and it looked so good that I couldn’t resist. I decided to pick up a few things – some fresh tomatoes, baby heirlooms, white plums, peaches, cucumbers, etc. I was in a veggie heaven!! As soon as I got home, I couldn’t wait any longer to try this delicious fresh produce.

I had some fresh baby arugula at home and I knew I just had to combine the juicy baby heirloom tomatoes with the plums. Ingredients as fresh as these don’t require much work. So I put together a simple and delicious recipe for a fresh autumn salad that you can pretty much make with the ingredients already in your pantry!
