How to make this fresh peach salsa recipe
I highly recommended you wait until fresh peaches are in season in your area before you make this summer salsa. You could substitute with canned peaches, but why would you want to?
To begin, you will peel and chop up the peaches into small chunks. If you are anything like me, refrain from eating these fresh peaches. My favorite way to quickly chop veggies is this professional chopper.
Dice the onion, red bell pepper, jalapenos, and tomatoes into small pieces and place them in a large bowl.
Add the chopped cilantro, juice from one lemon, chili powder and salt. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
This peach salsa recipe tastes best when it has been left for a bit and the flavors can meld. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before you are ready to serve it.
You can place this in a pretty bowl like this one and surround it with tortilla chips for an easy and delicious party appetizer. If you want to do something a little more fancy, grill up a chicken breast and top with this peach salsa. I have also tried it on some crusty bread like a peach bruschetta. Yum!
