Side Dish

Fresh Peach Salsa


The fog lifted!  If it hadn’t peach salsa would have been the brightest thing on the table: just the ticket for a soggy sea side luncheon. Make the salsa an hour (or 6) ahead so it has time to macerate before serving with Savory Corn Pancakes. Look for that recipe next week; in the meantime serve the salsa with grilled fish or chicken!

Fresh Peach Salsa – Serves 4; easily doubled or tripled!

2 fresh ripe, but firm, peaches – peeled, sliced and diced

1/2 cup sliced and diced orange bell pepper

1/2 cup sliced and diced (cherry) tomatoes

1/4 cup sliced and diced red onion

Juice and zest of 1/2 large lemon

1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon minced fresh mint

1 clove garlic, minced

1 small Jalapeno pepper (or a bit of your favorite hot sauce to taste)

2 teaspoons good quality olive oil

Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste.


1. Combine all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl, cover and chill for an hour or two so the flavors have a chance to “marry.”

Note: This will be delicious even if you serve it as soon as it’s tossed.  Substitute mango for the peaches if you prefer.
