If your family cookouts are anything like ours, there is usually no shortage of creamy, dairy-based dips and sides. Think French onion dip with chips or cheese and crackers. How about something fresh and seasonal to go with the creamy? This fresh peach salsa uses easy to find summer fruits and herbs like peaches, tomatoes and cilantro. The recipe also makes about 2-1/2 cups, so there’s plenty to share with family and friends.
Here is what you’ll need:
3 medium peaches, chopped, can be peeled or not
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
½ red onion, chopped
Handful chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: 1 or 2 seeded, finely chopped jalapeño peppers
Toss peaches, tomatoes, onion and cilantro together lightly.
Add jalapeño if using.
Sprinkle lime juice and salt and pepper on top and gently stir.
This salsa is best served the day it’s made. Keep fresh in the fridge until it’s time to eat. Enjoy!
