Is it just me or does peach season make you think about that song from the 90's by the Presidents of the United States of America? As I type this post, I'm humming along to their song that was about, you guessed it, peaches. If you have no idea what I am talking about, please don't tell me. You'll just make me feel old.
I love peaches and appreciate their versatility. They can sweet as in a cobbler for example or they can be savory and make a nice little accompaniment to some pork or a salad. I had seen beautiful looking peaches on sale and wanted to get a little adventurous and try my hand at peach salsa. This was super easy to make and something that can be used in so many ways. The obvious being to dip a tortilla chip in, but also, this would make a great addition to some grilled meats, or even on op of some melted cheese and crusty bread. Yum. This is a perfect little summertime treat.
Fresh Peach Salsa
- 2 peached, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 jalepeno pepper (you can chose to leave the seeds in for extra heat or take them out, your call)
- 1/2 red onion, finely diced
- 1 ear of corn, cooked, kernels removed
- The juice of 1 lime
- A couple pinches of smoked paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions: it really cannot get any easier, toss it all into a bowl and serve chilled or room temperature. You can also make this up a day or two in advance and keep chilled until you are ready to serve.
