New Mexico peaches are just coming into season. Try this salsa as an side for grilled fish, chicken, or pork. And serve with a few homemade tortilla chips to scoop up every last morsel of summer goodness.
Remember, improvising is half the fun with cooking. Add or substitute chopped mango for the peach. And, pictured below, we garnished with flat leaf parsley (didn't have any fresh cilantro on hand).
3 peaches, diced; optionally, add some chopped mango
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and fine diced
1 -2 sweet mini red peppers, fine diced
1 -2 green onion shoots, thin sliced - or - about 2 T fine chopped red onion
A few sprigs fresh cilantro, chopped
1 squeeze lime juice or a splash of white wine vinegar
Sea salt to taste
Optional, local honey to taste
2 drops each Lime and Cilantro (optional Ginger) food or therapeutic grade essential oils*
Combine diced peaches (and optional mango), tomato, jalapeno, red pepper, green onion (or red onion), and cilantro. Add the juice or vinegar, salt to taste. Add essential oils (1 drop at a time and taste between additions). Toss all ingredients. Taste and adjust salt, juice or vinegar, and add honey if desired. Let stand for 45 minutes.
The flavor of the essential oils will develop as it stands. Taste again before serving. May be refrigerated or use immediately. Serve as a salsa with homemade chips or as a side to grilled fish, chicken, or pork.
Makes enough to serve as a small portion to 3 or 4.
