“PERFECT” Peach Salsa

One of my favorite summer fruits are peaches, but I don’t always purchase great peaches. Sometimes they are hard, mealy, flavorless and just not sweet. Last Sunday, when I was at Trader Joe’s, unbeknownst to me at the time, I had hit the jackpot! They were still a little hard, so I waited until Tuesday to taste one. The first bite into the juicy fruit and I knew they were PERFECT!

Then I thought to myself, how was I going to advantage of having such fabulous peaches? Salsa came to mind. I did some research and came up with the following recipe. It is simply healthy and is a beautiful mixture of colors, flavors and textures! For those who love a little heat, add some red pepper flakes!

"Perfect" Peach Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 2 large ripe (but firm) peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • ½ cup organic frozen corn, thawed
  • ½ cup organic red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small jalapeño chile, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions:

  1. To peel peaches, add them to a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove them from the pot with a slotted spoon. Then place them in a bowl of ice water. The skin should come off easily using a paring knife.
  2. In a medium bowl, add peaches, corn, bell pepper, red onion, cilantro and jalapeño.
  3. Stir in lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve with organic tortilla chips.
