Right now just about every road you head down around these parts you’ll find a produce stand with fresh local peaches. They’re in season right now and it’s most difficult to pass up buying a bushel of the intoxicating fruit. If you’re like me and come home with a pile wondering why you thought you needed another cobbler or pie, consider making a batch of Peach Salsa instead. It’s a satisfying combo of sweet and savory and good for snacking, topping for a salad, or alongside a main entree. And the color can’t be beat, vibrant oranges, yellows and reds.

Simple chopping and mixing is all that is required. And while you can serve it right away, I think it gets better to let the ingredients marinate together–have a little party if you will. Adjust heat to your liking. The recipe below is fairly mild, but if you like it spicy, add more pepper and/or jalapeno. And make sure you use ripe peaches. It makes all the difference in the world.
