Fresh Peach Salsa

Ahh, peaches. Another sign that summer is really here. Growing up, we looked forward to my mom’s peach pie as the quintessential summer dessert.

But peaches with red onion and jalapeños? I can’t say this frequented the traditional Midwestern diet of my childhood. However, after the first bite of this stuff, I’d go as far as promising that our household will be serving this for years to come!

Have you ever tried a fruit salsa? If not, you’re in for a treat!  Not only is the blend of the sweet juicy peaches with the spicy red onions incredibly delicious, but it’s quite versatile. You could serve it with chips or crackers as an appetizer, as an accompaniment to a piece of grilled fish, or in a burrito or taco. As a sweet + salty fiend, I was in heaven with this stuff. I can’t wait to share the quick and easy way we served it – it’s my new go-to recipe for a fresh summer entree!

In the meantime, how would you serve peach salsa? Have you tried a salsa with other types of fruits?

Fresh Peach Salsa
Serves about 4

What You Need
4 ripe peaches
1/2 large red onion (or more to taste)
1/2 jalapeño pepper (or more to taste)
1 lime
Handful fresh cilantro
Kosher salt

What To Do

1  Peel and core the peaches; cut them into small chunks. Finely dice the red onion. Remove the stem, seeds, and ribs of the jalapeño pepper and finely dice half of it (or less or more to taste). Chop the cilantro.

2. Mix all ingredients together, and add the juice of 1 lime. Add a bit of kosher salt to taste. If you can wait, let sit for a few minutes to let the flavors meld. If not, dig right in!

    I love the sound of this peach salsa – looks gorgeous too. I love that combo of sweet succulent fruit, with salty and spicy. As soon as peach season returns to New Zealand I will definitely be trying this. I often make a salsa with fresh pineapple or mango, mixed with chilli, coriander and pistachios.

      Haha, I like the idea of being a fruit prude :) We’ve been having fun trying fruit in new ways — let us know what you think if you try it out! :)

    Perfect. I just got a haul of peaches from the farmers market and i’ve been pondering a peach salsa. Yours looks awesome!

      We have never tried to freeze salsa, so I’m not sure! Generally salsas are canned to preserve them. This type of salsa is best freshly made — but you could try freezing it and let us know if it works out! I’ll let others weigh in on whether they have frozen salsa with good results.

    We make this salsa with frozen peaches in the winter when tomatoes are terrible. Though I’m sure fresh peaches are better the frozen ones make a pretty tasty salsa too!
