I was in South Carolina last week and when I was on the highway, I saw baskets of peaches on a truck. I was tickled pink about this sighting because I had totally forgotten I was in peach territory. Of course now I was on the lookout for where I could buy my own basket of peaches. Alas right before heading back to the airport I found a farmers markets and literally got a basket of peaches and took them back with me to NYC.
Now what to do with my peaches! I didnâ€™t want to make a cobbler had done that last week with some strawberries and rhubarb. Salsa is what came to mind. I was also told that grilled peaches were greatâ€¦but I didnâ€™t have access to a grill.
2 Peaches (diced into small cubes)
Â½ Green Bell Pepper (diced into small cubes)
Â½ Red Onion (diced into small cubes)
2-3 Tablespoons ofÂ Chopped Cilantro
Juice from two Limes
JalapeÃ±o Pepper (that depends on the level of spice you would likeâ€¦I got a little too aggressive when I made this Salsa!)
Mix all of the ingredients together and ready to serve. What I loved were all the colors together, I thought it looked so fresh and absolutely beautiful.
