This fresh peach salsa is so juicy, sweet, and delicious! It’s simple and quick to make, and adds so much great flavor!
That’s right, it’s another peach recipe! Most of the peach recipes on my blog are desserts (as they should be) but for a fun change, here’s one that goes well with savory dishes. This fresh peach salsa is delicious on top of tacos, tostadas, or enchiladas, and also is pretty fantastic just eaten with chips. It’s loaded with juicy peaches, and has such a lovely combination of flavors! It takes just a few minutes to make, and is a fun and unique addition to your dinner menu.
My kids are pretty wimpy about spice levels, so I used a seeded and ribbed jalapeño for this salsa, but if you like things spicier you could leave the seeds and ribs in, and/or add more than one jalapeño. The red onion adds some nice flavor and a little kick without being overwhelming. My peaches were really sweet and ripe, but if you’re using peaches that are a little more tart, you may want to add a little sugar to the salsa. It’s not overly sweet, but I really like the balance of sweet and savory in this salsa.
One of my favorite ways to eat this salsa is as a topping for grilled or breaded fish, but it goes with pretty much everything! I served it with some carnitas tacos last week and my husband said they were the best tacos ever. This fresh peach salsa is the perfect late summer side dish!
