One year ago, if you told me I would be eating raw onions, peach, and diced jalapeno in a salsa I would have laughed in your face and then drove to the gas station for more ding dongs.  I don’t 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 phenomenal gardener. And all of these ingredients are in abundance right now. And not everyone is as weird as me.

But this recipe is worth stepping out of my comfort zone for.

And thank goodness I momentarily veered from my usual tendency 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!

    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.

      Oh that sounds amazing!! I should have known you would have an awesome adaptation for me… I cant wait to try this with your suggestion! 🙂

  • Mel says:

    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… 🙁

    • Amanda says:

      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!

  • Bethany says:

    I’ve never tried salsa with peaches. My dad made some amazing salsa with mango that was really similar to this. This sounds delish!

  • Marissa says:

    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

    What variations would I have to make in order to be able to can this in a water bath? I’m trying to find uses for the bushel of peaches I have, but unfortunately need them to be able to last as I can’t use them all right away!
