In a small bowl, toss the onion with the lime juice and salt. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to pickle lightly. Just before serving, add the plums, lemongrass, mint, basil, sugar, and jalapeño, if using. Toss to mix. Taste and add more sugar and lime juice, if you like. Serve this salsa right away so it doesn’t get watery.
