This recipe is my signature summer salsa. I just decided this today.
Of course it doesn’t make much sense because a “signature dish” is one that a person is well known for — and well, only two people have tried this — me and my husband.
I know what you’re thinking . . . that we’re totally biased. I mean after all, I made it and my husband, well, he’s my husband.
I’m very confident though, that everyone will love it as much as we do. (If somebody tries this salsa and doesn’t like it, I’d wonder if that person also doesn’t think puppies are cute. 😉 )
I’m hoping to serve this Grape-Plum Summer Salsa recipe many times during the rest of the summer, and as long as I can get the seasonal ingredients — making calling it my signature summer salsa legit. I do hope you’ll try it too. 🙂
The colors of the fruits are what inspired the ingredient list — I think they’re so beautiful (and delicious!) together.
Enjoy and I hope you’ll find that salsas with plums are as delicious as I do!
And be a star and bring this Grape-Plum Summer Salsa to the next party you’re invited to!
Here are a couple more of my favorite summer salsas with plums:
- Fresh Plum Salsa from Bruce Aidells on Fine Cooking
- Chunky Plum Salsa Cruda from Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious
Melissa’s Produce sent me samples of the grapes, and as always, all opinions are my own.

- 1 cup green seedless grapes washed and dried, quartered (I used Melissa's Produce Green Muscato)
- 1 cup red plums (Elephant Heart plums are perfect), diced (the size of the dice should closely match the size of the cut grapes)
- ¾ cup red onion, finely chopped
- ¼ cup cilantro, washed and dried, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 tablespoon jalapeño pepper (red or green), super finely chopped
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Add all of the ingredients except the salt and pepper, to a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir gently.
Season to taste with the salt and pepper. (Here's How to Season to Taste.)
