Grilled pluot salad

A lot of plum, a little bit of apricot, and a bunch of fiber: The pluot has only been around since the late 1980s, but its sweetness and intense, delectable flavor mean this healthy stone fruit will be at farmers markets for ages to come. Look for firm, unblemished pluots with vibrant color. They continue to ripen and are ready to eat when they soften and have a strong, fragrant smell.
