  • Summary

    This fusion pico uses the best of Summer plums for a tangy-sweet, spicy salsa that's perfect plain as an appetizer with best quality tortilla chips or as a topper for Mexican inspired soups or salads! Keep this pico seasonal by using any ripe stone fruit available: nectarine, mango, cherry, peach, pluots, and apricots are all excellent!
