Before you start

Marinate the cheese for 1 h, as explained below, then assemble the salad just before serving.


  1. Finely chop half of the basil then put it in a shallow bowl. Pour in the oil then mix well. Slice the goat cheese into rounds then add them to the bowl. Spoon the basil oil over the cheese, cover and let stand about 1 h at room temperature, or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the cheese from the basil oil and transfer the oil to a large bowl. Pour in the vinegar, add salt and pepper to taste. Wash and spin-dry the mixed greens, then add them to the bowl. Chop the remaining basil then add it to the bowl. Toss well, then divide up the greens onto individual serving plates.
  3. Wash the plums and cut each into thin wedges lengthwise, discarding the core. Place the wedges on top of each plate with 1 cheese round in the centre. Serve.
