Peach Corn Salsa
When it rains, it pours. For instance, think about produce in the summer. Just when peaches are in season and they are available in abundance, barbecue season is still in full swing – as is the sweet corn crop.
Grilled corn is a staple of the season and like peaches, they are something you want to enjoy when the opportunity presents itself. This brings us to the problem of what to do with leftover grilled corn. Sometimes you end up grilling a bit more than you need, but there are ways that you can use this overabundance of summer sweet corn as well as incorporating the fresh peaches, which are also readily available.
Salsa is one way to make grilled sweet corn and peaches into something absolutely wonderful. This spectacular peach-corn salsa is perfectly sprightly and spicy, making a perfect addition to any summer barbecue.
There are not many ingredients in this. Apart from the peaches and corn, you just need onions, cilantro, and lime, to make this salsa perfect and bring out the sweetness of the peaches and the natural sweetness of the corn too. You will notice this salsa does not call for the addition of chilies, because it is full-flavored enough without them.
However, it is your recipe so if you do want to spice it up, go ahead and add some minced jalapeño or even a pinch of chipotle chili powder. Fresh ingredients are best here, but you can use canned corn if you do not have any fresh corn. You do need to use fresh peaches though, because without them the flavor of this simply would not be the same.
- 4 peaches, peeled and diced
- 1 cup grilled corn
- 1 red onion, diced
- 2 green onions, ends trimmed and sliced thin
- ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
- Juice of 2 limes
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- Begin by taking that leftover grilled corn out of the refrigerator and cut the kernels off of the cob.
- Add the corn to a bowl along with the peeled, chopped peaches, red onion, green onion, cilantro and lime juice.
- Stir well to mix and season to taste with salt and black pepper before refrigerating.
- Your peach and corn salsa will taste significantly better if you allow it to rest for a couple of hours (or longer, overnight is best of all if you have the time to prepare your salsa a day ahead of time) before serving.
- This gives the flavors of your salsa time to develop and to blend with one another, ensuring that your salsa is at its absolute best before you start digging in.
This unusual peach and corn salsa is as versatile as it is delicious. Serve it with chips or crackers, or take inspiration from the picture and use it to top some chicken tacos, adding a lovely fruity flavor to them. This recipe does not call for chilies, but you can add some heat if you wish. If you plan to serve this with a spicy dish though, it might be better to leave the chilies out, else you will have too much heat in the dish as a whole. This salsa is bright-colored and appetizing.
