Ingredients and Variations
PEACHES: Fresh or frozen works here. Look for peaches canned in their own juice and pat them dry before dicing. Freeze the peach juice in ice cube trays for sweet tea!
VEGETABLES: Go for colorful bell peppers like red and green to complement the peach colors. Red onions are preferred since they are sweeter than yellow or white.
JALAPENOS: Remove and discard the seeds before mincing jalapenos. You might not need a whole jalapeno, so start with half and add more, if desired. Pickled jalapenos or pickled red onions offer a more subtle heat and are versatile in other recipes, too!
SEASONINGS: Lime juice and olive oil marries all the flavors together. Use chili powder and cilantro to taste. Parsley can be easily switched out for cilantro without altering the final results.
VARIATIONS: Mix and match peaches with diced nectarines, mangoes, pineapple, strawberries, or tomatoes. Adding some diced avocado will add a creamy texture, roasted corn kernel or a can of drained black beans will add a pop of color and texture to peach salsa.
How to Make Peach Salsa
- Toss diced peaches with lime juice in a large bowl.
- Add remaining ingredients and allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.
What to Serve With Peach Salsa
- Use peach salsa as a dip with tortilla chips or celery stalks, or spoon it over grilled chicken, pork, or salmon.
- For meatless meals, serve peach salsa over grilled vegetables or cilantro rice. Add peach salsa to a taco quinoa bowl or pork carnitas.
- It’s also excellent over homemade vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce to balance the spicy jalapenos.
Storing Peach Salsa
Keep leftover peach salsa in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and drain before serving.
