  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste

  • 5 oz baby arugula
  • 1 small head radicchio, cored and shredded
  • 1/4 lb dried plums, quartered

Pit fresh plums and cut into small wedges. Reserve 3/4 of the plums for assembling the salad.
