Sweet And Spicy Peach Salsa

I am soaking up all of the summer produce, especially the peaches! Here is an EASY Sweet & Spicy Peach Salsa that is sure to kick up any ordinary dinner. It is so delicious and perfect for a quick snack or served with chips watching sports! 6 ingredients total, it really is that easy! All of your favorite summer flavors are combined in one dish and that’s what makes this Peach Salsa so perfect. Combining peaches, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno and lime juice, these flavors blend together for the best tasting summer salsa. I have been loving the combination of peaches with jalapenos – it’s the perfect blend of sweet & heat!

What is your favorite summer produce staple? Every time I go to the produce market I am instantly drawn to the peaches. I didn’t grow up loving peaches or remembering enjoying them during the summer. I mostly remember the adventures in the woods and all of the mosquito bites instead. I do remember when I lived in Philly with my older sister, we would be so excited to go to the market in the summer to get peaches. She loved them so much and taught me how to pick the ripe ones. One summer in particular they took so long to get ripe – we were waiting and waiting. Week after week we would go back to the market to see if they were finally ripe! This is why I do not take ripe peaches for granted and I eat them up any chance I get!

There is something so great about combining fresh ingredients together to make something super tasty. This is a chunky salsa perfect to add to any fish dish (enjoyed with cod last night), mixed into white or brown rice (yum!), on tacos and as a classic chip & dip match made in heaven. I believe a generous amount of salt is key to a perfect salsa. I am also very generous using lime juice as I love how it balances out all the flavors and blends them together. TIP: you could substitute mango, pineapple or watermelon for the peaches to customize your perfect version of this salsa. One thing I can guarantee is that you will want to eat this on everything!

PEACH SALSA

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Peaches
  • 1/2 Tomato
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 TBSP Jalapeno, seeded
  • 1/4 Cup Cilantro
  • 3 Limes
  • Pinch of Salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Take peaches, tomato and red onion and dice small and add to a medium sized bowl. Slice the jalapeno, remove the seeds and dice small (the more seeds you keep the spicier the salsa will be). Chop the cilantro and add it with the other ingredients. Cut the limes in half and combine juice to the mixture. TIP: before you cut the limes in half, roll them on a flat service for 15 seconds. This will help to loosen the insides and extract more of the juice inside! Once all ingredients are in the bowl add a heavy pinch of salt to the top. Take two spoons and start to mix the ingredients together until well combined. Enjoy as a dip or on top of your favorite protein!
