Plum Salad & Raspberry Dressing

The combination of juicy, sweet plums topped with a swirl of tangy raspberry dressing promotes this light salad to a position worthy of centerpiece status. On a hot summer day, it can be a refreshing meal all on its own -- or serve it to compliment your other vegan end-of-summer classics.

Ingredients:

For Salad:
4 ripe plums (photo includes 2 golden plus 2 red plums)
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 big handfuls baby salad greens
handful of pecans

For Dressing:
3/4 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. agave syrup
scant 1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. water

Directions:

1. Place a handful of baby leaf salad greens on each plate.
2. Slice the plums into segments and toss in a bowl with the sugar; stir well. Allow several minutes for the juices to begin to come out of the plums and for the sugar to dissolve.
3. Spoon the plums onto the greens.
4. For the dressing -- blend the raspberries, balsamic vinegar, agave, oil and water in a blender until smooth. Pour generously over the salads.
5. Top with pecans and enjoy!

Youth Empowered Action

Youth Empowered Action (YEA) was founded on the belief that, from a young age, people are naturally idealistic and compassionate and want to help others. But, without the tools and the belief that they can make a difference, people can become resigned or cynical about having the power to impact the world around them.

YEA Camp is committed to ensuring that young people who want to make a difference in the world have the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to do so.

YEA sees every meal as another opportunity to instill values of interconnection and compassion. From the YEA website: "YEA takes pride in every meal at camp being delicious, as well as modeling the sustainable, ethical, and compassionate world we look to create. We are being the change we wish to see at every meal. As a result, all of the food at YEA Camp is vegan, as well as local and organic to the greatest extent possible. This is in alignment with our intention to practice living in the most sustainable and compassionate ways possible..."
