This Fresh Peach Salsa is an easy and delicious summer recipe! Serve it as a dip with chips or as a topping over grilled chicken.
As my wife will quickly point out, I’ve never been one for combining sweet and savory flavors. She loves sweet + savory. Me? Not so much. To be fair, I’ve found myself enjoying sweet and savory together in recent years, but it’s still not my go-to combination. That’s why this Fresh Peach Salsa took Laura by surprise.
More specifically, Laura was surprised at how much I loved this salsa. I couldn’t stop eating it! In fact, as I was standing in the kitchen eating chipfuls of this salsa, I told Laura, “I need to put this stuff away before I eat it all!”
Fresh Peach Salsa
The peaches are the shining star in this Fresh Peach Salsa. They bring just the right amount of sweetness without overpowering the entire salsa. Add in the savory elements of tomatoes, a green bell pepper, onion, avocado and a jalapeno, and you’ve got an amazing combination of flavors. This salsa screams summer in the best way possible!
If you’re anything like me, then the thought of onions, peaches and tomatoes in the same recipe might give you a moment of pause. Trust me on this one, virtual friends. This Fresh Peach Salsa is amazing!
We ate most of this salsa with tortilla chips, but Laura pointed out that this combination would actually be great on top of grilled chicken. We tested out her theory that night with grilled chicken breasts, and she was right! Plus, topping that grilled chicken with this salsa made for a colorful presentation – perfect for summer meals on the back porch.
I will note that this Fresh Peach Salsa recipe makes a party-sized batch of salsa. I thought about reducing the recipe volume, but then you’d end up with ingredients like ½ of an avocado, ½ of a jalapeno and ½ of a green bell pepper. What would you do with all those random leftover ingredients? Well, make another batch of salsa probably!
I decided it made more sense (at least for me) to leave the recipe as is – just know that you’ll have enough salsa for a party. Either that, or you’ll have leftovers. (And I don’t mind leftovers one bit when we’re talking something as delicious as this Fresh Peach Salsa!)
This recipe is super easy in that there is no cooking required. Just hop in the kitchen, *chop* *chop* *chop*, *mix* *mix* *mix* and you’re all set! On a side note, this salsa does produce a fair amount of excess liquid as it rests. Just make sure to drain the liquid or scoop out the salsa with a slotted spoon before serving.
When fresh peaches are at the height of flavor in your area, pick up a couple extra peaches to make a batch of this Fresh Peach Salsa! It’s delicious either as a dip or a topping for grilled meat. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do – I’m off to see if we still have any leftovers in the fridge! Cheers!
