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.

    This recipe is my idea of heaven. You’re so lucky to have peaches. Ours won’t arrive until August so I’m bookmarking this right now.

    I would have never thought to add peach to a salsa recipe, but now that I’ve read this, I can’t wait to try it! Looks so good!

    Amy I JUST made peach salsa for my blog! Think we are on the same wavelength. Mine’s a little different–I’ll post it next week, although did use some incredible South Carolina Peaches. :)

    Loving the idea of ancho and brown sugar, YUM.

    I’m jealous!! Your area is ahead of mine with the peach crop coming in! Clings are in here … but I’m waiting it out for the freestones, which should be very soon. :-) Love your salsa recipe.

    i love fruit salsas – peaches aren’t in season yet in the Northeast, but when they are, I will definitely be trying your recipe!

    12 servings, eh? Not around here! Made it with nectarines (peaches were like rocks) and served with grilled shrimp (shrimps?). Beyond fantastic. The two of us nearly finished off the bowl …..

    I just tried this recipe and even though I did not have the yellow peppers, it was very tasty. I added more peaches and red onion to fill in the void. I served this salsa as a side to a grilled pork tenderloin.
