Fresh peaches are one of my favorite things about summer, and this peach salsa is a flavorful topping that will elevate a humble dinner of fish or chicken to a summer evening delicacy. This salsa also tastes delicious with tortilla chips or as a sandwich topping.
Some days my busy schedule makes it difficult to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables, but with fresh salsa in the fridge I can grab a quick, produce-rich snack on the go. Many of the ingredients are in season right now here in Massachusetts, so this is a great time to make peach salsa.
- 1 lb peaches
- 1/2 lb tomato
- 2 tbs chopped onion
- 1/4 lb red bell pepper
- 1/4 lb green bell pepper
- 1/4 lb cucumber
- 1 tbs chopped jalapeno pepper seeds removed
- 1 tbs lime juice
- 3/4 tsp salt or to taste
- Chop the peaches, tomatoes, onion, bell peppers, and cucumber. Place them in a food processor.
- Dice the jalapeno pepper and add it to the food processor along with the lime juice and salt.
- Pulse 7 or 8 times and then check the consistency of the salsa. Continue pulsing until you get a slightly chunky consistency. You don’t want to liquefy the whole mixture.
- Store the salsa in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
