I’m calling this “everyday peach jalapeño salsa” because I could eat it every day. On every thing. Grilled chicken, check! Carne Asada, check! Throw it in a smoothie, checkity check check check. All meals should just have a related salsa that goes on top; especially if it only takes 5 minutes to make.
Did I say this salsa takes 5 minutes to make? It does. Zip zap done. Also, I need to have a word with you about jalapeños. Jalapeños are like a heat chameleon.
They can be hot, as in, you-can-hardly-breathe-through-your-mouth-hot. Or they can be, WTH-that’s-not-even-spicy-hot. It depends on the season.
I feel qualified to talk about this jalapeño lie because I have grown jalapeños in my garden since 400 years ago when I started gardening. The hotter the season, the hotter the jalapeño. Early summer jalapeños are not as hot as end of summer jalapeños.
If you love fresh flavors, but hate spicy (are we even friends), you can remove the seeds and ribbing of the jalapeño and the spicy is gone. Just scrape all the insides out. This works for early season jalapeños but it may not work for late season jalapeños.
How To Make Everyday Peach Jalapeño Salsa
- Add diced fresh peaches to a medium sized bowl
- Add fresh jalapeno, diced. Remember to scrape out the insides if you don’t like spicy.
- Add lime zest, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and apple cider vinegar
- Gently stir together and allow to sit covered in the refrigerator for at least and hour.
Things You May Need
This is a versatile salsa that goes well with a variety of dishes. I especially love it with grilled chicken or steak, but also is amazing on tacos.
1 Peach, fresh, diced
1 Jalapeno diced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
zest of 1 lime
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/8 tsp (or a pinch) of salt
In a medium bowl combine all ingredients
Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour
If you don’t like spicy but love fresh flavors like jalapeño, try scraping out the insides before chopping. Also note that depending on the season, the pepper can be mild or super hot regardless of whether you scrape it out.
