Fresh Plum Salsa


"The plums absorb the full-bodied spiciness of the salsa to give it a light, smoky-sweet flavor. Perfect as a side or snack on a hot summer day or as an accompaniment to tacos or grilled pork. This salsa can be heated up to taste by adding more or hotter varieties of peppers. As is, this salsa would probably be classified as mild."

I'm crazy about this recipe and so are my friends. I'm surprised this recipe isn't rated higher. It is quite easy to adjust to your tastes and it seems quite forgiving.
