stone fruit salsa recipe

The sweet, salty, and spicy flavors of fresh fruit salsa make it the perfect healthy topping for tacos. It also serves as a low calorie dip for a serving of tortilla chips, and a pretty garnish for grilled fish. Stone fruits like the cherries, nectarines, and plums used in this recipe are ideal for seasonal fruit salsas. Keep in mind that the fruits tend to break down quickly, so make this salsa only an hour or two before you plan to serve it.
