One year ago, if you told me I would be eating raw onions, peach, and diced jalpeno in a salsa I would have laughed in your face and then drove to the gas station for more ding dongs.

I dont like vegetables.

Or trying new things.

So making this was pretty much a NEVER-GOING-TO-HAPPEN-EVER in my mind.

But my husband is a phenominal gardener.

And all of these ingredients are in abundance right now.

And not everyone has the same werid food issues as me.

And I just happened to have my XyBoard Tablet with awesome 4G coverage from Verizon, so I was able to do a recipe search right from the garden.  Because, as you can imagine, the combination of these ingredients did not occur spontaneously in my ding dong lovin’ brain!

Cilantro Peach Salsa


  • 1 cup cubed fresh peaches*
  • 1/3 finely chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place all chopped ingredients in a bowl and squeeze lime juice over top. Season with salt and pepper. Can serve immediately, but salsa is even better the next day!
  2. *The finer you chop the peaches the easier the salsa is to eat, however I loved how the bigger dice looked. So its really up to you how big to chop them!

Recipe adapted from

Thank goodness I momentarily veered from my usual tendancy to say no, because this salsa is delicious.

Sweet, tangy, spicy.   Easy.  Good for you.  You would be silly not to run home and make it.

We enjoyed it on organic corn tortilla chips, but I am sure it would be fabulous as a marinade for chicken or fish!

I am sharing this sweet recipe over on the FNDish blog for Food Network.  A few other fabulous and creative bloggers are as well… I cant wait to check out every link! :)

    Yum – I love this peach salsa recipe! I made peach salsa just last week and wish I had some cilantro. Instead, I used basil, which was good too, but I really craved cilantro. Next time, will make this one.

    Ha! You are hilarious…you made me laugh – so way to go on trying new foods and combinations! This peach salsa looks dreamy. I love fruit salsas but have mainly only had mango salsa never peach. Going to love this!

    Sounds amazing. Can I tell you a secret? A friend just gave me a GIANT zucchini. And I have not clue what to do with other than make bread. Cause I really don’t like Zucchini and Squash….. What can I say? I grew up on canned vegetables… :(

      Did you see my zucchini post? Those brownies are amazing. There are SO many things you can do with zucchini… really. You are such an amazing cook girl, I know you would make something awesome!

    I had peach salsa on the brain, then I saw this today. I picked up some jalepenos and made this, it is delicious! I think it will be great over some pork carnitas I made the other day, or on nachos with grilled chicken.

    So I made this last night, and tasted it, and really liked it. I am going to serve it later today for a party, and tried it again, and wow, the salsa is really packing flavor!! Can’t wait for my friends to try it…thanks for the recipe
