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.
This recipe makes about 4 cups of salsa, perfect for a party or meal prep.
- 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.
Let me know if you have any unique peach recipes I could try out. Hope you have a great day!
