Fresh Peach Salsa

DSC 6839blog

I mentioned earlier this week that we went to a peach festival earlier this month, and we bought a huge box of peaches.  And they are delicious - so juicy and sweet and satisfying!  It was definitely worth the 28 dollars to buy a box.

However, I always underestimate just how many peaches fill up that box - and last week I realized we may not get to eat all of them before they go bad.  So what did I do?  I decided to make peach salsa!  And I invented my own recipe, which makes me feel so culinarily talented and creative (even though I'm not). 

So I thought I'd share my recipe for peach salsa with you.  Derek and my brother-in-law were my taste-testers, and they gave it their stamp of approval.

Fresh Peach Salsa

4-5 peaches, peeled and diced
4-5 roma tomatoes, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
3 slices of onion, diced
4-5 jalepenos, diced
3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, minced
1tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. white vinegar

1. Combine all ingrediants in a bowl.  Add onions and jalepenos to taste.  Serve with chips or over fish, chicken, etc.

And that's it!  Super simple, it just takes time to cut up all the produce.  I added 4 jalepenos and it wasn't quite spicy enough for me, so if I make it again I'll probably add more like 6-7 jalepenos.  Also, this makes a rather big batch, so it would be good for a party.  I ended up freezing the extra.  I think it should freeze well, but I guess we will see when I thaw it out in another month or two!

Have any of you ever made your own salsa?  I think I'm going to have to do it again and experiment with making different kinds.  I'm not huge on cooking, but this is one thing I thought was really fun to make, and who doesn't like fresh salsa?

Marc's extended family makes a rockin' watermelon salsa. It is pretty much watermelon, jalapeños, onion, cilantro (I think). It looks just like normal salsa because the red of the watermelon, so it is surprising when you take a bite, but yum yum yum.
