Plum Recipes Series: How to make Plum Salsa in 5 Minutes

Since we’ve got so many wild plums laying around the house, I thought we’d make a series of plum recipes for your enjoyment (and so I can use these babies up!). After sharing a dessert option with the plum tart, I thought it would be fun to show how you can use plums as a topping for barbecued meats or fish. The problem with most barbecue sauces is that they’re heavy in refined sugars. This plum salsa recipe has no added sugar, and whips up fast. We decided to shoot a little video to show you just how fast. I’ve posted the recipe ingredients below. Stay tuned for the next plum recipe in the series!




Wild Plum Salsa

  • 3 cups chopped yellow or red plums (wild if you have them)
  • 1/2 jalapeno finely sliced
  • 1/2 medium to large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 handfuls fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 handful fresh mint, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt to taste

Combine all ingredients together and add salt to taste.

I’m sharing this with Veggie ConverterMeatless Mondays, Monday Mangia, Midnight Maniac, My Meatless Mondays, My Mouth Watering Mondays, Mingle Monday’s, Monday Mania, Fat Tuesdays, Traditional Tuesdays and Tuesdays At The Table.

    A plum series sounds like so much fun! I don’t do enough cooking with them. This salsa sounds delicious…fruit in salsa makes it that much better!

    I love the idea of plum salsa – so original and unexpected. The combination of cilantro and mint must give rise to a deliriously delicious taste sensation. Very nice France!

      “deliriously delicious taste sensation!” I love it. That wins the golden star for best description ever!
