Truth be told, I never was a fan of fruit salsas. I thought they were weird, and why ruin a good thing (as in tomato salsa)?
But really, fruit salsas in the summer are insanely good. And even though all things pumpkin are popping up, it’s still summer-time, you guys. And sadly for us Floridians, it is still s.u.m.m.e.r. for a few more months…so excuse me while I keep on making fruity salsas!
We had Jason’s family over this past weekend for lunch. My grill-master made Cilantro-Lime Chicken Wings (and smoked ribs, and a whole chicken. That man is obsessed. But then we have protein all week, and I don’t have to cook…so I’m good with his new found meat smoking obsession), and I wanted something sweet to go with them.
After attending the Food and Wine Conference this year, I was able to try a sweet Georgia Peach (and a Peach Smoothie, but that’s another recipe for another day), and thought a Peach Salsa full of cilantro would go so well with these wings!
So while Jason was outside sweating to death to get the wings just right, I was in the cool A/C making this salsa. My life is so hard…

These wings with Peach Salsa would be a perfect way to say good-bye to summer during Labor Day weekend! You can easily maintain the ripeness, by storing your fresh peaches in the refrigerator.
- 3 fresh peaches, diced
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1 jalapeno, seeds, and ribs removed, diced
- 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Add to a bowl: peaches, onion, tomato, jalapeno, cilantro and combine. Add lime juice, and salt/pepper, mix well.
- Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!
Are you a fruit salsa fan, or a traditional salsa fan?
Thanks to the Georgia Peach Council for a case of fresh, ripe, sweet Georgia peaches. All opinions are mine. Now go make this salsa! Olé
