Subtly sweet white balsamic and sharp black pepper make wonderful foils for ripe summer berries and stone fruit in this jewel-like salad.


  • 2 red plums, sliced

  • 1 pint fresh raspberries

  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

  • ½ cup fresh sweet cherries, pitted and halved

  • ¾ cup red grapes, halved (or sliced, if large)

  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar

  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Arrange plums on a platter. Scatter raspberries, strawberries, cherries, and grapes around them.

  2. In a small pot, boil vinegar until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 teaspoon water. Drizzle over fruit; sprinkle with pepper. Serve immediately, or wrap in plastic and refrigerate up to 4 hours.
