The skin is removed from the turkey, and the salsa bears no added fat.
1 (3- to 3 1/2-pound) bone-in turkey breast
1 cup apricot nectar
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
6 large plums, peeled and diced
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced
1/4 cup minced green onions
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
WEBER Charcoal Kettle or Genesis Gas Barbecue
How to Make It
Remove skin from turkey breast, and discard. Place turkey in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag or baking dish.
Combine nectar and next 3 ingredients in a jar; cover tightly, and shake vigorously. Reserve and chill 3/4 cup nectar mixture. Pour remaining mixture over turkey breast, turning to coat; seal or cover and chill overnight, turning occasionally.
Combine 1/4 cup reserved nectar mixture, plums, and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; cover and chill at least 1 hour.
Remove turkey from marinade, discarding marinade. Place turkey on food rack over a drip pan.
Cook, covered with grill lid, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted in turkey registers 170°, basting occasionally with remaining 1/2 cup reserved nectar mixture. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with plum mixture and mixed greens.

I made this for my parent's 55th wedding anniversary. The turkey came out moist with a hint of apricot. The salsa tasted a little like tomatoes with a fruity overtone. I am from the southwest, and served this to a group in Illinois so I seeded and deveined the jalapeno to take out the heat. Nonetheless, the salsa was great. I recommend this recipe to anyone who wants to take the time to make it. I ended up giving the recipe to a friend there in Illinois and my SIL.
