This peach salsa is such a delicious way to combine sweet and savory flavors together and it’s a fun swap from the classic only-tomato salsa. Only using simple and whole ingredients, it can be wrapped up in no time and will add so much freshness to many dishes, from tacos to burgers. Use in-season fresh peaches for best results and let them do most of the work to bring that flavor punch in this dish.
How to make it:
Well, it does not get any easier than this, just chop and mix! This recipe should only take 15 minutes to make.
I prefer using yellow peaches for their classic peachy taste and bright color, but extra sweet white peaches would work well too.
Adjust the spicy level by using more or less of jalapeño. If you are in a fiery mood, leave the seeds in too!
You can use Roma tomatoes to avoid a watered down salsa. If you don’t have them, just use regular tomatoes and remove the seeds inside and use mostly the flesh. Cherry tomatoes are great too.
I acknowledge that I’m quite into the cilantro taste, I pretty much want to add it to anything. But, in this case, I would say cilantro is NOT optional. It has that complex almost lemony taste that brings all these fresh summery ingredients together.
This peach salsa would make for great toppings for any tacos, quesadillas or burgers. Or, use it as a flavor boosting garnish in a simple rice and bean bowl or roasted vegetables (asparagus, green beans, potatoes). Make avocado boats for a fun kid version: just omit the jalapeño, cut avocados in half and fill them with this salsa. They can eat them with a spoon, so fun!
