Peach Salsa 2 Ways

Fresh peaches have been available for a few weeks now, and who doesn't love peaches? Try these two peach salsa recipes, one savoury for an appetizer, one sweet for a dessert!

Savoury peach salsa is a great condiment for fish, pork or even chicken.  Our thoughts? Serve it with tortilla chips and pair it off with a glass of prosecco for a fantastic appetizer!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 lb tomatoes, (2-3 large tomatoes or 7-8 roma tomatoes) diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 1 medium red or yellow onion, diced
  • 1½ lbs peaches, (3-4 peaches) diced
  • ½ bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Dice all vegetables and place in large bowl

     

  2. Peel (if desired) and dice peaches and add to vegetables in bowl
  3. Add remaining ingredients, toss and taste
  4. Serve with tortilla chips!

Sweet peach salsa is an excellent dessert item - serve on top of angel food cake or pound cake - or, scoop with chocolate wafer cookies instead of chips!

Ingredients:

  • 4 large peaches - cut into small bite sized pieces

     

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced and diced into small pieces
  • I handful (or 1 loosely packed cup) of fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 - 1 cup toasted slivered almonds.
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

 Directions:

  1. Chop fresh peaches and strawberries in to small bit sized pieces and mix together in large bowl.

     

  2. Boil water and sugar together to make simple syrup until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. 
  3. Tear or chop mint leaves into small pieces and mix into fruit mixture.
  4. Toast almond slivers in oven until golden brown. Let cool and then add to bowl with fruit and mint.
  5. Slowly pour cooled simple syrup over fruit mixture while stirring gently until fruit is well covered.
  6. Let sit for 30 - 60 minutes before serving.
