When Life Hands You Peaches You Make Fresh Peach Salsa.
In early July I had 50 pounds of peaches on my hands. It was my first time ordering from The Peach Truck and to be honest, I had no idea how much 50 pounds of peaches actually was. Turns out, it’s a lot.
Needless to say, we were up to our eyeballs of gorgeous, ripe and juicy peaches. We had them with breakfast, lunch and dinner. I froze a lot but I also made peach cobbler, crostini, and whipped up this incredible fresh peach salsa. Kind of like a peach version of pico de gallo. I personally like to serve it with tortilla chips, as a topping for fish or shrimp tacos or spoon in onto grilled salmon, pork or chicken. It’s really SO so good!
This refreshing and deliciously fresh peach salsa is perfect way to use up ripe peaches!
To Make This Fresh Peach Salsa You Will Need:
- ripe peaches – Peaches are ripe when you gently squeeze it and it gives a little.
- roma tomatoes – Roma tomatoes are flavorful, have fewer seeds and tend to be less acidic.
- red onion – Consider soaking onions in ice water removes a lot of the bite. You still get onion flavor but it mellows out considerably.
- cilantro – Lends fresh, citrusy (and to some a soapy) flavor.
- jalapeño – Adds flavor with some heat. Remove seeds and ribs for less of a kick.
- garlic – This adds distinct and punchy flavor to this dish.
- kosher salt – Enhances and draw out all of the flavors.
- lime juice – Brightens the salsa and adds a touch of lime flavor and acidity.
In a large bowl, add 3 finely diced ripe peaches, 1 (good size) seeded and diced roma tomato, 1/2 a minced red onion, 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro, 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 small jalapeño that is finely diced.
