This chunky red plum salsa recipe came about as an accident. I went to the store intending to buy peaches. August is national peach month and I wanted to celebrate. Unfortunately, the peaches weren't looking so great. But the red plums looked amazing and they were on sale. I love a good sale. So I bought a few and racked my brain to come up with a creative way to use them. So now here you have it; chunky red plum salsa. This salsa is slightly sweet, slightly tangy and slightly spicy. It pairs well with plantain chips, grain-free tortilla chips (especially the lime flavored ones from Siete Foods), poultry and fish. Enjoy!
