Plum and Cracked Pepper Salad with Shaved Parmesan

Sweet and tangy, this combination of plums, Parmesan and seasoning create a unique and tasty appetizer that is sure to surprise and delight anyone you share it with. Taking inspiration from a Caprese salad, I wanted to create a dish that utilized in-season plums and a flavorful cheese like Parmesan. Reminiscent of warm summer breezes and evening walks on the beach, it is a perfect symphony of flavors for your next back yard soirée. I hope you enjoy!
