How to make this peach salsa recipe

Peach salsa is ridiculously easy to make. Want to know how it's done?

  1. Dice the peaches, red onion, and red pepper.
  2. Mix them with cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper.

That's it!

If you want to add a bit of heat, finely mince a jalapeño pepper. My personal preference is always for a little (or a lot) of spice. But I've made this recipe without adding the jalapeño and it is delicious that way, too.

How to serve peach salsa

We love peach salsa heaped on top of grilled salmon or Grilled Chicken Breasts. The sweet savory combo is our favorite! But there are lots of delicious ways to serve this salsa. Here are a few others that we like:

  • With tortilla chips for scooping.
  • Mixed into some rice.
  • On top of baked brie cheese with crackers on the side.
  • Piled on top of a chicken burger.
  • As a pizza topping. Move over pineapple!

Description

Fresh Peach Salsa is a breeze to make and so delicious. We love it spooned over grilled chicken or fish but it's just as good served as an appetizer with some tortilla chips. It's one of the best ways to eat sweet summer peaches!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 medium peaches, diced (see notes)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 minced jalapeño (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt  and pepper (more to taste)

Instructions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. The salsa is best if you let it sit for about 15 minutes but it can be eaten right away if you are in a hurry.

Notes

Make sure to choose peaches that are ripe but not squishy. I like to leave the skin on the peaches for color and texture. If can either keep it on or remove it.
