With the final few days of summer coming to a close, I felt the need to scour the grocery store for any fresh fruit hanging on the to season. Rather than a sweet treat, I was looking for something with a little sweetness, a little spiciness and a lot of zip.
Always a fan of traditional salsa, adding fruit gives it more depth, and just the right amount of sweetness, while adding a couple of jalapeños definitely gives it the spice it needs.
Grilled fish, beef or pork tenderloin become transformed with some tangy peach salsa spooned over the top.
Add some black beans and the salsa can be a meal in itself.
It’s even great the traditional way, scooped up with chips, which is exactly how my daughter ate it.
4-6 plum tomatoes, diced
1 bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
2 jalapenos, seeded and finely diced
1 medium red onion, finely diced
6-8 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
