Sweet and Spicy Fruit Salsa
From Cook's Country
A fruit salsa is a refreshing topping for grilled meat and fish. We wanted a recipe that produced the perfect combination of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors to complement the sweet fruit in a lively salsa. We found that fruity, tangy cider vinegar brought out the natural flavors of the plums and peaches in our recipe, while still keeping the salsa savory. Minced jalapeño and shallot offered welcome heat and pungency, and cool basil complemented both the hot and sweet elements. Mashing a portion of the fruit with a potato masher before adding it to the rest of the fruit and vinaigrette gave the final dish the consistency of a salsa rather than a relish.
Makes about 3 cups
The salsa can be made up to 4 hours in advance- if left any longer, the fruit will become mushy. If you like your salsa spicy, don't seed the jalapeno.
