Tonight I am doing my first ever cooking demonstration. Well, the first in front of people I don’t know. Anyway, I’m whipping up Zesty Peach Salsa with fresh peaches from Yaryan’s Orchard in Green Bluff, WA. They were so sweet and delicious. What? I had to give them a taste. :) As I always tell my kids, “I have to make sure it’s not poisonous”. Those words usually come out of my mouth as I’m passing them a Frappacino with Whipped Cream. Yes, I’m that Mom.
Back to the recip – it’s super quick, super tasty and if you’ve never made a savory salsa with fruit before, you’ll be hooked! This recipe is easily adapted by substituting watermelon, plums and even cherries (see recipe link below). Give it a try!
Zesty Peach Salsa
4 whole peaches, skinned and diced
2 small shallots, minced
2 jalapenos, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped
1 lime, juiced
salt to taste
1 Add all ingredients into a medium bowl and mix to combine. Salsa can be served right away or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight for depth of flavor.
Note: This salsa recipe can also be canned for your enjoyment after peaches are no longer in season
