Donna’s Plum Salsa

“Donna made this plum salsa for one of our Shacklett Lab get togethers. It is light and sweet and is great during the summer time.

I made a loquat version of it later in the summer and it was also very good. You could substitute other fruits in this salsa as well.” – April Ferre
