Peach Salsa




This is Peach Salsa. Move over tomato, the peach is taking over....

I believe the tomato is so over-rated. Ketchup, spaghetti sauce, spiced canned tomatoes, cocktail sauce, tomatoes on fast-food burgers, V8 (3 servings of vegetables), etc...

Where do you see a peach? Pie, cobbler, cake, and in a can. The peach was thought of enough in 1961 to have a children's novel written about it (James and the Giant Peach). What has the tomato done?

Ok....Fried Green Tomatoes, but that was not produced until 1991. The peach does over-power the tomato!! This recipe will convince you.


Peach Salsa


3 1/2 cups fresh peaches (about 6)

1 bunch chopped green onions

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. fresh ginger root, grated

2 whole hot chili peppers, minced (I bought the whole chili peppers in the jar. It is up to you how spicy hot you want your salsa. I thought 2 was plenty.)

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1 TBS lime juice

salt and pepper to taste


In a bowl, mix peaches, onion, garlic, ginger, peppers, cilantro, and lime. Season with salt and pepper. Chill until serving.

Mine is going to a cook-out, so I made it the day before, and refrigerated it so all the spices and flavors will blend.


Enjoy!!
