Happy Labor Day! We hope you are doing something fun to celebrate the holiday. If you are looking for an easy Labor Day recipe, make peach salsa. This bright and colorful salsa is great with tortilla chips, served with grilled fish, chicken, or pork or eaten along side any Mexican dish.
Utah peaches are at their peak right now and I am in heaven. Last week our friend gave us a bag of ripe and juicy peaches from his tree. The peaches are huge, the size of baseballs, and very sweet. I took one bite and juice came bursting out and dripped all over my chin, hands, and floor. Mmmm, a taste of summer! It was worth the sticky mess. After enjoying a few peaches, I decided to make peach salsa with the rest of my fuzzy red and yellow fruits.
This quick and easy salsa is a great way to enjoy summer peaches. It is fresh and full of flavor. It is a great appetizer or snack when served with tortilla chips. We made homemade baked tortilla chips to go with our big bowl of salsa. The salty chips were perfect with the sweet peach salsa.
If you are having a Labor Day BBQ, picnic, or end of the summer pool party, make this peach salsa to share. It is a great dish to take to parties. Have a great Labor Day!
