Food from the Farm: Peach Salsa
Last summer I got really into making fresh salsa -- beautiful, heirloom tomatoes from our garden, cilantro, lime, yum. All summer long I've had a taste for it, but where I live tomato season is still another month away. Last night I decided to stop waiting and branch out to a fruit salsa. I made mine with peaches, and it hit the spot. This salsa is very good with fish. We had ours with rice and beans, and it jazzed them up just so. I think you'll like this too!Peach Salsa
- 2 peaches, diced.
- 2 T. red onion, minced
- 1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 3 T. lime juice
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- 1 t. olive oil (optional)
Prepare the peaches, onions, jalapeno, and cilantro and stir together in a medium bowl. Gently stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend and the peaches to release some of their juices. Serve with tortilla chips, rice and beans, fish, or all of the above.
