Fresh Peach Salsa

Peaches are back at the Crescent City Farmers Market, so we have to celebrate with peach salsa. Grab nearly all of the ingredients at the market and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bell pepper (4 oz), seeded and finely diced
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 1/2 lbs peaches, diced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper or to taste

Directions

Chop tomatoes and transfer them to a large bowl.

Finely chop seeded bell pepper and jalapeños. Finely chop the onion and transfer all your veggies to the bowl.Dice the peaches. I liked the slightly larger dice for peaches to give them more of the center stage in this salsa. No need to peel them. You won't notice the peels and the color is prettier with the peel on. Transfer peaches to your bowl.

Add ½ bunch chopped cilantro, 2 Tbsp lime juice, 1½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Add more salt and pepper to taste if desired. Fold everything together until well mixed and enjoy!
