Mango is Played out, Peach Salsa is where its at.
Seems like everyone and their mom is on the mango-salsa bandwagon right now.
I wanted to make a fruitier/sweeter salsa but I didn’t want to join the hype-train and make “just another mango salsa” so when I saw peaches in season I decided to swoop them up and give it a shot. What followed was so good.
The ingredients for Salsa seem to be pretty universal. Use math to reduce/increase in proportion for how much you really want.
- 4 Tomatos, I prefer Roma’s because they are really firm and I like my salsa chunks to hold up instead of puree.
- 1 Bellpepper
- 3/4 Yellow Onion
- 2 Peaches
- 2 Jalapenos
- 1 Bunch Cilantro
- Juice of 1 Lime or if you’re like me….then like 2 tbsp of lime juice.
- Salt to taste
There really isnt much to “the process” here. Everything kind of fell into two categories.
Category one is the “chop into cubes because I want this to hold its shape” category. This is the bellpepper, tomato, and peach. These are the items that I hand-chopped.
Category two is the “who gives a shit, just process it.” This is the cilantro, onion, and jalapeno. Dropped those in the processor/chopper and just let it get pulverized.
Mix it all up and what you’re left with is a refreshing, sweet, NOT MANGO salsa that is really tasty.
Chips never had it so good.
