I really love ripe summer peaches. I don’t bother buying them any other time of year, because they really don’t compare.  Juicy, sweet peaches, ready to be eaten as a messy snack, baked into desserts or turned into a simple jam, so we can have a little summer when the snow flies.
I’m also a big fan of fruit salsas, and this Fresh and Easy Peach Salsa is no exception.  It’s an excellent way to use up a few extra peaches, but in my opinion, it’s also worthy a purchase of some peaches, just for the recipe.
With just a few ingredients, the sweet summer peach is transformed into a sweet, savoury, bright tasting condiment that is delicious on tortilla chips, in fajitas or tacos, or on grilled meat or fish.  I haven’t tried it with the Sweet and Smoky Dry Rub Mix yet but I think they would be particularly tasty together.  I love that it’s both healthy and delicious!
So if you have a few simple ingredients and 10 minutes to spare, why not give it a try?  I like this salsa best when it’s freshly made – all of the ingredients let out juice as they sit so it gets a little more watery.  But hey – you might like that too!

Ingredients
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • cilantro
  • 1 lime
Instructions
  1. Wash two peaches and chop them into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Wash and seed a red pepper and dice into small pieces.
  3. Mince about 1/4 of a red onion.  You might use a little more or less depending on the size of your onion and how much you like onion.  Start with a little less - you can always add more.
  4. Wash and chop a small handful of cilantro.  
  5. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.  Add juice of 1/2 a lime*.  Stir it together and give it a taste.  Limes can vary dramatically in how juicy they are.  If it needs a little more zesty kick, add juice from the other half of the lime.  
  6. Stir together and enjoy! 🙂
Recipe Notes
  • * I love my handheld juicer (similar to this one) for quickly juicing lemons and limes.
