Peach Salsa

Peach Salsa

Peachy Keen and Spicy, too

We’ve had what felt like an epic heat wave in Los Angeles recently, so recipes that don’t involve actual cooking are more than welcome in my kitchen.  This is a great salsa recipe to have in your back pocket – it is so ridiculously easy and delicious!  It puts juicy summer peaches in the forefront, giving them some tang and some spice to complement the sweetness.  This salsa goes incredibly well with chicken soft tacos (which is how we had it), but you could just have it with chips if you want!  Or eat it with a spoon, I won’t tell.

Peaches are a great source of vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber.  They offer antioxidants to ward off inflammation and aging.  What’s not to love?  And of course, they are in season right now.
