Herbed Peach-Plum Salad

Sure, you could just cut up some peaches and plums for your child... but why not take it a step further?

Herbed Peach-Plum Salad
Prep time: 10 minutes, plus an hour to marinate

2 ripe plums
1 ripe peach
1 handful champagne grapes (or red grapes)
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp herbes de Provence

Dice the plums and peach (skin the peach if you think your tot will object to the texture of peach skin). If using regular red grapes, cut them into halves or quarters. Toss the plums, peaches, and grapes in a bowl with the honey and herbes de Provence, mixing well to coat all of the fruit with the honey and herbs. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for about an hour before serving.

This was simple but excellent. Abby ate it all up and asked for seconds. The herbs add a nice touch, and the honey is just enough to bring out the fruit flavors without being too sweet.
