Pluots are a hybrid of plums and apricots resulting in a variety of colors and flavors. Some pluots are deep red, others black, and some a mottled green. Their flesh ranges in color from magenta to pale yellow. No matter how you slice them – they’re delicious!
Savory Pluot Salad is a refreshing way to use them in a dish suitable for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The combination of fruit with toasted nuts, feta cheese, onions, and tomatoes is surprising and delightful. For best results, choose fruit on the firm side, suitable for chopping.
Of course, pluots are a delicious snack on their own. And once you’ve entered the land of pluots, you are bound to encounter apriums, peacotums, plumcots, and many other fun varieties to try. These fruits also make a nice and healthy addition to Stone Fruit Salad. Enjoy!
