Peach salsa can be used as a condiment for chicken or seafood, but is all that with a bag of tortilla chips.

Spanish for “sauce,” salsa comes in many forms. Pico de gallo, an uncooked salsa made with tomatoes, onion and peppers, comes to mind quickly, but salsa can be made with a wide range of fruits and vegetables, including corn, mangoes, beans or tomatillos.  At the peak of summer, tomatoes are plentiful in our garden, but another summer favorite can be used to make a sweet and spicy salsa of a different color. Fresh peach salsa adds spectacular flavor when used as a condiment on chicken, seafood or vegetables, but this blend of peaches, tomatoes, pepper, onion, and fresh herbs  may quickly become your favorite chip dip in a season that is all too brief.

Select peaches and tomatoes at their peak of ripeness with vibrant flavor and firm flesh. Blanch carefully to remove the skin of the fresh produce without cooking the flesh, which will impact the texture of this fresh, delicious salsa.
