Peach Salsa with a Twist
However, it is that atypical pairing that gives this salsa its delightful qualities!
I also like being able to use canned peaches and tomatoes, which makes this a salsa that is easy to prepare, no matter what season of the year. I am giving the directions for canned fruit, but if you want to use fresh fruit, substitute 2 cups of tomatoes and 2 cups of peaches for the canned items.
1–15 oz can peaches, drained
1–15 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
3 small jalapeños, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed or minced
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, dice peaches into half inch or small pieces. Add tomatoes. Add the finely chopped onion, jalapeños, garlic and cilantro. Add fresh lime juice, cider vinegar and salt; toss well. Cover and refrigerate at least an hour. The salsa is actually better if left in the fridge for a day before serving.
Use as a dip with chips or as a relish with bean dishes. It is really tasty served as a complement to fish, pork or chicken entrees.
