Fresh Peach Salsa Recipe

Not only this Fresh Peach Salsa is it yummy as an appetizer with chips, it's also really good as a topping for fish or pork; who would have thought?

The Mr. and I made a goal to purposefully use more seasonal fruits and veggies this year. We’ve been coming up with all kinds of ways to use up the peaches from mom’s tree.

We re-visited and updated the Peach apricot crumble recipe, you probably saw the lattice peach pie, and now this. Although there weren’t a ton of them, the peaches seemed extra big and super juicy this year. They were delicious in this salsa.

I like that peach salsa is a little less acidic than a regular tomato salsa. Not only is it delicious as an appetizer with tortilla chips, it’s also really good as a topping for fish or pork; who would have thought?

Ingredients for Peach Salsa

1 lb tomatoes, diced
1 bell pepper (4 oz), seeded and finely diced
2 jalapenos, seeded and finely diced
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 1/2 lbs peaches, diced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper or to taste

Peach Salsa

How To Make Fresh Peach Salsa Recipe:

1. Chop tomatoes and transfer them to a large bowl (yep, thats the Vidalia Chop Wizard; it made this salsa so easy!).

Peach Salsa-2

2. Finely chop seeded bell pepper and jalapeños. Finely chop onion and transfer all your veggies to the bowl.

3. Dice the peaches. I liked the slightly larger dice for peaches to give them more of the center stage in this salsa. No need to peel them. You won’t notice the peels and the color is prettier with the peel on. Transfer peaches to your bowl.

Peach Salsa-5

4. Add 1/2 bunch Chopped cilantro, 2 Tbsp lime juice, 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Add more salt and pepper to taste if desired. Fold everything together until well mixed and enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips or serve with fish or pork.

    This looks terrific…..I’m wondering how well this would can in a water bath? Reply

      August 26, 2018

      Hi Trish, I honestly haven’t tried canning this recipe so I’m not sure if it has enough acidity to preserve well.
      Maybe someone else has tried?? if so, please share your results with us (thanks in advance!) 🙂  Reply

      • Trish
        August 27, 2018

        I may just try a few jars this weekend as I’m getting a 1/2 bushel of fresh Utah peaches. Will probably increase the acid using lime juice and offset the tart by using honey. I’ll let you know how it turns out Reply

    This all looks so good and we have lots of fresh peaches. I have an aversion to the taste of cilantro. Any recommendations for a substitute? Can I leave out the jalapeño? Reply

      That is pretty common Lauri! Several our readers have tried this with parsley and love it! Hope this helps! Reply

    Made your peach salsa using a Vidalia Chop Wizard.

    The recipe is terrific.

    However, liquid accumulated in the mixing bowl, although I added no liquid to the recipe.

    Any thoughts about this? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      July 6, 2018

      Hi Dennis! The only thing I can think of maybe the juices of the fruits running out after using the chop wizard? The Chop wizard crushes the fruit some what besides cutting it of course so that squeeze could’ve provided those extra juices. We also add lime juice to this recipe. Did the water appear instantly or after sitting there? Reply

    Absolutely delicious! We made the recipe exactly as written and enjoyed every bite. It was a little too spicy for the kids but the amount of jalapeño can easily be changed!! The adults gobbled it up. 😃 Reply

    Great recipe! I made this at least 3 times during the last month, and came home with an empty bowl every time!! My friends have requested I make this every time I come to their house from now on!! I also used orange bell peppers, because my kids don’t like bell peppers, so orange is very easy to hide. Also used heirloom tomatoes for the same reason. This is now our new family favorite, bell peppers and all. Reply

      We just at a batch of it tonight too! I haven’t tried canning it. I wonder if it needs a little more acidity to preserve it though. To be honest, my husband and I always wolf down an entire batch between the two of us in one sitting and we always want more! 😉 Reply

    Awesome recipe! For some reason I wasn’t a big fan of fruit in salsa, but this recipe changed my mind. The only reason why I even tried the recipe was because your pictures of the salsa look so amazing. I’ve already made it several times and have served it at my husband’s birthday party paired with baked salmon. Everyone was raving about this salsa. This recipe is another keeper!;) Thanks Natasha!! Reply

    I love fruit salsa! Just until recently, I’ve been making a ton of tropical fruit salsa, using mangoes, cantaloupes, pineapples, any other tropical fruit I could find. I can only imagine how well peaches would go in salsa. Peaches always remind me of mangoes in some ways. Reply
