Spicy Peach Salsa Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Spicy Peach Salsa

This spicy peach salsa is absolutely gorgeous! The combination of colors creates a beautiful presentation, while the delicious blend of sweet and spicy flavors makes it a wonderful addition to simply prepared fish, chicken or pork dishes. This one is a keeper, for sure!

For best results, make this salsa the night before serving so the flavors have a chance to blend. This will also soften the peaches and onion to a nice consistency.

Tip: Soak the red onion in a cup of water for 10-15 minutes before using to reduce its strong flavor and odor.

Equipment needed

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh peaches, pits removed and cut into small pieces
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • ½ medium shallot, minced
  • 3 tbsp red onion, cut into small, thin slices
  • 1-2 tsp jalapeno peppers, seeds and veins removed, and very finely minced
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed and chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste

    My peach trees are just getting ready to be picked so this is perfect timing. Can’t wait to make this with some of our own freshly picked peaches.

    This would be perfect for the peaches I picked up at the Farmers Market last weekend. I make a similar recipe which adds 1-2 cloves of garlic.

    I’ve always heard of mango salsa, but somehow I think peach would be just as good. And cilantro of course is a must in any salsa!

    Right when I saw the title I thought that I would make this to pair with fish. It sounds so fresh and good especially with the great peaches that are ripe right now.

    Oh yum, this sounds good! I love peach salsa so this would be right up my alley. My favorite way to use peach salsa is on chicken or pork.

    I may try this with some pork tonight. Jalepenos though are too spicy for me. Love cilantro though.

    I’m not a peach fan but this looks amazing! I think I would like it because the peaches are chopped up. It sounds good with some baked chicken. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    An interesting recipe indeed. I never thought of using peaches as a salsa, even so adding spices to it. I will try making this and see how my family likes it. I am positive I will get the thumbs up. They are crazy about spicy food!
