If you love the idea of combining sweet fruit with savory and spicy flavors, you’re going to want to try this fresh peach salsa recipe. It’s easy to make and ready in a snap.
Making fresh peach salsa
Since peaches are the star of this recipe, you’ll want to start with the best and most flavorful peaches you can find. O’Henry peaches are always a good bet, but what variety you have available to you will depend entirely on your location.
I prefer to use freestone peaches; this means the peach flesh is easy to remove from the pit.
Fleshy Roma tomatoes are a good bet here, but again — use what’s available to you locally for the freshest flavor.
