Fresh Peach Salsa

We're under a severe weather warning that's been in effect all day and through this evening. It's for an extreme heat advisory. I think our air conditioning has been running non-stop. I guess so. They're saying that right at this moment it feels like it's 98 degrees outside. Not exactly a day to be cooking anything. Not even grilling.

I went through my huge 3-ring binder of recipes and came across this one. It's a fabulous recipe and would be great on a day like today. Or any day, really. It's just plain yummy!

Fresh Peach Salsa

What you will need:

2 large tomatoes
2 medium-size ripe peaches, peeled, halved, and pitted
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup finely chopped red or green bell pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 to 3 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lightly packed cilantro or Italian parsley leaves, chopped

Tip: To seed the tomatoes, slice them in half crosswise and, working over a dish, use a finger to gently push out the juice and seeds.

1. Core, seed, and finely dice the tomatoes. Place them in a medium mixing bowl. Finely chop the peaches and add them to the tomatoes.

2. Stir the remaining ingredients into the salsa, adding the lesser amounts of lime juice and sugar at first. Wait a few minutes, then taste the salsa and add more if needed. Cover and refrigerate the salsa until serving time. Makes about 3 cups. Serve with tortilla chips.

Note: You will definitely want to double this recipe!



  1. This sounds really good. I have everything here to make this! I think I'm going to! Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful day. I'm stopping by from the TOS crew.

  2. SERIOUSLY now... peach SALSA!? If it weren't CSLady talking I'd say that sounds kind of eh, strange-ish. Since it is CSLady talking though, I will only say that there must be something good about it. :) You're too good of a cook! :)

  3. If you enjoy peaches, you will enjoy this recipe. Yes, it really is fabulous, Dani!

    Thanks for stopping by, Jen. You'll have to let me know how you liked the recipe.
