Peaches are the zenith of summer. They perfectly embody the sunshiny, breezy, carefree, warm days.
Especially fresh peaches straight off the tree. The kind of peaches that you have to lean over the sink to eat. Where each bite is an explosion of flavor. And by the last bite your hands and face are properly sticky. Those are heavenly.
While I tend to eat our peaches within seconds of plucking them from their branches, a few managed to make it into the kitchen and into a delightfully addictive Peach Salsa.
Did I mention that these peaches are from my parents’ orchard? In Wisconsin! Who knew that peaches and Wisconsin were a match made in heaven? A delicious, juicy, sweet, yummy heaven. And in heaven, at least in my heaven, there is lots of salsa! Peaches + Salsa = another duo perfectly matched.
Sweet and spicy. Just like you!
Peach Salsa Recipe
cooked from Wisconsin, USA
8 small peaches, pitted and diced
1 red onion, finely diced
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 large lime, zested and juiced
1 or 2 finely diced jalapeños (depending on spice level desired, add or omit)

1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Mix all ingredients together. Grab a bag (because you won’t be able to stop) of tortilla chips and dig in!
Other flavor combinations:
Mangoes, pineapples and tomatoes are also fantastic in this salsa. (I’ve been dying to try it with berries too.) Buen provecho!
