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?Print
- 4 ripe peaches
- 1/2 large red onion
- 1/2 jalapeño pepper
- 1 handful fresh cilantro
- 1 lime
- Kosher salt
- Peel and dice 4 peaches. Finely chop 1/2 red onion. Remove the stem, seeds, and ribs of the jalapeño pepper and mince half of the pepper (or add more to taste). Chop the cilantro.
- Mix all ingredients together, then add the juice of 1 lime and a few pinches kosher salt. Eat immediately or after 5 minutes to let the flavors meld.
