Hot Sweet & Sour Salsa




Hot, Sweet and Sour Salsa, is a transition piece for plums.
So many ways to taste the seasons, and yet another twist.
A deep dark, and flavor full plum; chopped.
One quarter red onion; chopped.
Sauce it up with a blend of...
One tablespoon...Sesame oil.
Two teaspoons...Honey.
One teaspoon... Vietnamese chili sauce.
Splash a little less, or more, depending who you are making it for.
Dip into it, or top on some favorite taco or such.
Serve it for an intro it an early supper or a late lunch.
Simple and salted slim chips will do; Taro might be better.
Keep fists full of fresh crisp leafy greens to cool the tender tounge down.
Share it over cool cocktails, iced jasmine tea, or even a ginger lemonade.
When the weather cannot decide whether to stay fair, or shower around,
...enjoy this piece of transitional Plum, to make for some good play.

Oh, Tabitha ..."Gastro-porn".
Me too. I get high off the food, and then need to share all the details the next day with another "foodie";<>

this sounds really yummy! i found a wonderful salsa recipe made with cantalope, lime juice, dried cranberries and fresh cilantro - it goes with turkey garlic feta burgers. the recipe came from a free "delicious living" magazine from the local health food store.
deeelicious!
