Pineapple Peach Salsa

Pineapples and peaches are made for each other; that is why you will find them together so often in dishes like summer fruit salads and desserts. However, there are many other uses for these two popular fruits, both on their own or better yet, together.

In this pineapple peach salsa recipe, the two fruits co-star, making a wonderful dip for chips or a condiment for shrimp and other seafood dishes, though it’s good with just about anything else.

Bursting with fruit flavors from the pineapple, peach and lime juice, this salsa balances things out with just enough heat and the snappy, assertive flavors of cilantro and red onion. You will find it to be a nearly addictive combination, which begs to be eaten with a wide variety of dishes all summer long, or whenever else you can find fresh pineapple and peaches in the market.

Fresh fruit is always great, whether you are enjoying it as a snack, using it to make a dessert, or using it in something slightly more unusual such as a Mexican salsa recipe, and using fresh fruit really is the making of this dish, so don’t for one second consider switching to canned!

The ingredients are combined to make this colorful and attractive salsa, and then you need to let it sit for a couple of hours so all the flavors can blend nicely. It is then ready to serve. Taste it before you let it sit, and then again after, so you can taste for yourself how much smoother the flavors are afterwards.
