Slingshot is normally started by clicking Applications in the top panel, but you can add a starter in Plank as well :

sudo nano /usr/share/applications/slingshot.desktop

paste the following lines :

[Desktop Entry] 
Version=1.0 
Type=Application

Exec=slingshot-launcher

Terminal=false

In Files navigate to /usr/share/applications and drag the Slingshot icon to Plank and release when seeing a + sign....
