Grape and plum homemade salsa is a great alternative to basic chips and dip. The spicy sweetness makes it the perfect appetizer or main dish accompaniment. It is an easy appetizer that is great for parties and the star of Super Bowl snacks.
My husband is a Mexican food lover. He would eat spicy food morning, noon and night. Whenever we go out for breakfast he orders some sort of skillet that contains green chiles and chorizo sausage then tops it with a hefty portion of sriracha or Tabasco.
I love spicy dishes and Mexican food too, but I like a bit of variety in my diet. There are only so many enchiladas, easy chicken tacos, and tostadas I can eat in a week!
Easy Homemade Salsa
It takes a creative mindset to combine Mexican food with a need for a diverse menu. Luckily, I love to explore the range of Mexican foods beyond green chilies and tomatoes. My favorite mishmash is a slightly spicy salsa made from grapes and plums. It sounds a bit odd, but it is a delicious homemade salsa combination!
The flavors of this homemade salsa are a perfect blend:
- Grapes and plums provide natural sweetness
- Scallions, fresh jalapeno, and cilantro add spice
- Lime juice and salt bring the ingredients together
This stuff is seriously addictive. The first time I made the recipe we may (or may not) have stood over the bowl scarfing down chips topped with its sweet spiciness until we were too full for dinner. Honestly, it is that good!
