Have you ever tried a plumcot? I’ll be honest, prior to shopping at Heinen’s, my adventurous spirit for stone fruit did not venture far past peaches, plums and cherries, but that all changed when I made this salad.

Heinen’s makes it a priority to source a wide selection of high quality produce, and during stone fruit season, I learned that the options expand far beyond my wildest imagination.


For those, like me, who had never tried a plumcot, here’s a little background. They’re part plum, part apricot with more plum characteristics. They have sweet apricot qualities that balance out the sour hints from a traditional plum, and they come in multiple different varieties.

That alone was enough to sell me on this stone fruit, and I have a feeling that this refreshing summer salad with a homemade honey lemon vinaigrette will sell you on them, too!

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
