Cherry and plum salad

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

Cherries, plums and grapes are a great combination, their flavours enlivened here by the addition of coriander, orange liqueur and vanilla.

  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 40 ml Grand Marnier or Cointreau
  • 1 tbsp raw caster sugar
  • 1 orange, juiced and rind finely grated
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ vanilla bean, seeds scraped
  • 750 gm cherries, pitted
  • 4 red plums, cut into thin wedges
  • 200 gm red grapes, halved
  • To serve: shop-bought vanilla ice-cream, and brandy snaps
01   Dry-roast coriander seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat until fragrant (30 seconds), then lightly crush with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a bowl, then add liqueur, sugar, orange rind, juices and vanilla seeds. Add cherries, crush lightly with a fork, then add plums and grapes, stir to combine and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes for flavours to develop.
02   Serve with scoops of vanilla ice-cream and scattered with coarsely crumbled brandy snaps.
