Peach Season!

Peach season is my favorite because Utah has the BEST peaches. We eat as many as we can and let the juice drip down our faces…and then we get to work. We make LOTS of peach recipes: baked peach oatmeal, peach butter, peach pie, grilled peaches, and more!

One of my favorite easy peach recipes is Peach Salsa! This fruity salsa is so fresh and delicious and the perfect snack for a summer day.

Picking the Perfect Peach

You can use any variety of peach, white or yellow peaches work well in this salsa.

You don’t want to use peaches that are hard because they aren’t ripe yet. You also don’t want peaches that are super soft, they will get mushy in the salsa.

Look for peaches that have a little give when you gently squeeze them. They should also smell fragrant and have no bruises. These are the perfect peaches for salsa!

Salsa Ingredients

You only need five simple ingredients to make this fresh salsa, and a little salt and pepper!

  • Peaches– the star of the show!
  • Red onion– for flavor and color!
  • Jalapeño– for a little spice!
  • Cilantro– a must for salsa!
  • Lime juice– use fresh lime juice!

How to Make Peach Salsa

You only need a few minutes to make this sweet summer salsa!

  • I like to peel the peaches, but if you don’t mind the skin, you can leave it on. Remove the peach pit.
  • Chop the peaches into small pieces and place them in a medium bowl.
  • Now, you are going to add all of your traditional salsa ingredients: red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice. And don’t forget the salt and pepper to bring out all of the flavors.

See how easy that was? You can make fresh peach salsa in a matter of minutes! You will love the sweetness from the peaches with the heat of the jalapeño. The combo is amazing!

Serving Suggestions

Peach salsa is a great appetizer or snack when served with chips. We like to make homemade pita chips or homemade baked tortilla chips , but store bought chips are fine too. Salty chips are perfect with the sweet peach salsa.

The peach salsa also goes great with tacos, quesadillas, burritos, grilled chicken, fish, or pork!

If you are having a BBQ, picnic, or summer pool party, make this peach salsa to share. It is a great dish to take to parties.

  2. Nothing like fresh fruit 🙂 mm mm mm. I just got some carolina peaches- they are totally at their peak too (and so inexpensive!). What a great way to use them up. Happy Labor day!

  3. I can’t believe you’re making such a beautiful salsa while your house is under renovation. That’s very impressive. The salsa looks fantastic!

  4. Growing up in Georgia we always had bunches of peaches and I could never get enough of them. I love peaches and this salsa looks so good. Yummy!
    Hope you had a nice Labor Day weekend!

  5. I have been thinking about this since you mentioned it last week!! I’m picking up some peaches today – I’m hoping I find some time and energy to make this!

  6. I just saw this on Becky’s site, it looks delicious! I have been canning peaches today and this is the perfect way to end my day.

  7. I would like to make this salsa, but was wondering if it’s okay to freeze it.

    My husband comes home from work and snacks on chips and salsa…so making a huge batch just for one sitting would be kinda wasteful. I’m thinking about freezing mini portions for my chip man! 🙂
