This peach salsa is my attempt to keep summer around for a little while longer.
While everyone is coming out with apple and pumpkin recipes, I share a summery peach salsa that I can’t get enough of.
But don’t worry, I have plenty of apple and pumpkin recipes up my sleeve this year that I can’t wait to share with you.
So I’ve been making salsa like crazy ever since I got a new kitchen gadget that literally makes salsa in 30 seconds. Like I really needed another kitchen gadget, but I am a total sucker for sales presentations.
I was out shopping for a baby shower present when I spotted a cooking demo nearby. Of course I had to check it out. It was kitchen stuff and it was The Food Network so, um, hello?! I didn’t stand a fighting chance.
So I left the mall with $100 worth of kitchen items and no baby shower present. Ugh. Please tell me you fall for these things, too so I don’t feel like such a sucker.
Anyway, one of the things I bought was a little manual food processor (THIS is the closest thing I could find for it online – looks exactly like it) and it really does make salsa and chopping other things a breeze.
Even if you don’t have this handy dandy little gadget, this peach salsa is so simple to whip together with a basic food chopper. It’s so fresh and flavorful with bites of sweet, juicy peaches and garden fresh veggies. Yum, salsa doesn’t get better than this!
We’ve been especially loving it paired with fish and chicken. It’s even great with eggs for breakfast.
Oh and an update for those that follow the Primally Inspired Facebook page (please follow along!): Yes, I ended up eating the salsa after discovering a tiny worm in it. Thanks for all your input on what I should do and for the many laughs. I first looked around for any relatives and then set the little guy free and then dug in Like Amy said, “Better a worm than pesticides.” And I couldn’t agree more!
