For the love of (peach) salsa!

Hey friends, how is your week starting out?  We started out a little rough Monday, the little miss has an ear infection and I banged my knee pretty hard falling out of a yoga arm balance (I totally thought I had it….not quite).   Fortunately the little lady is feeling better and other than a bruise, my knee is fine.  Despite the rough start, it is hard not to be in a good mood, because the hubs is graduating this week!!!!!!  I am so proud of him and looking forward to all the celebrating.

Speaking of festivities, doesn’t this peach salsa look like it’s ready to party?

As I have mentioned, our little peach tree is quite the producer.  The kids and I love peaches, but there is no way we could just eat all these peaches.  We give plenty away, but  I am always trying to find new recipes for them.  Peach cobbler is a must have for me (it reminds me of my grandma), but I try to find other uses as well.

I was playing with the idea of a peach salsa, because I wanted a way to use them outside of desserts and breakfasts.  This salsa turned out great!  It is a fun, fruity alternative to traditional salsa, that can be paired with chips for quick snack.  It is also an excellent topping for chicken of fish.

Peach Salsa

This recipe makes about 4 cups of salsa, perfect for a party or meal prep.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Roma tomatoes – de-seeded and diced.
  • 4-5 peaches (average size – our tree produces little baby peaches, so I actually used about 8) – peeled and diced
  • 1/4 red bell pepper – diced
  • 1/2 red onion – diced
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro – chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Add all ingredients in a large bowl and fold together until well incorporated.  Taste and add additional lemon/lime juice or salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and refrigerate for one hour prior to serving.

  1. Yum this looks perfect for warm days! I love sweet/spicy salsas like this! I also love some mango salsa. Have you tried baked peaches? I’ve heard they’re delicious baked and then topped with vanilla ice cream!

    1. Thanks! I love the sweet/spicy salsas too. We made mango salsa last week and Costco has an awesome pineapple salsa. I will have to try that, I have made cobblers and peach pie, but haven’t baked them on their own.
