Scrumptious Peach Corn Salsa

If you like peaches, you will like this salsa. Corn and peaches combine their sweetness with a little bit of peppers for heat, creating a salsa that is utterly amazing. You can serve it with chips at a party. You can also serve it as a condiment for fish, pork, beef, or chicken. This is one versatile recipe that makes the most of those ripe peaches in the summer.

This delicious peach and corn salsa can even substitute for a salad. Just eat it with a spoon for a delicious treat or snack anytime. The flavors blend nicely, creating a sweet, yet complex combination that tickles the taste buds. This is a colorful salsa that just screams summer. Of course you can play with it a bit, too. Throw in a tomato if you have one, or a little cool cucumber. The contrasts of texture and flavor are what you want to highlight.

Serve this salsa at a party for an appetizer or make it into a delicious side dish or condiment with a main dish. Think how delicious this would be when eaten with a nice piece of grilled steak. Salsas like this really bring the best out of the entire genre. They are versatile, nutritious and taste great. You can pick up fresh peaches at your local farm stands or at the farmers’ market. Ripe peaches should have a wonderful sweet fragrance. Look at the skin and inspect it for bruising. The skin may be streaked both yellow and pink. The peach should be firm, yet slightly soft. Do not squeeze it; you will bruise it for the next person. Peaches with green tints to the skin are definitely not ripe yet.

As well as the juicy peach this salsa boasts corn, onion and jalapeño to bolster the flavor, as well as aromatic ginger, basil and lime, which work beautifully with the other ingredients to bring out the soft, fragrant sweetness of this salsa. The jalapeño adds a little kick to it, reminding you this is a south of the border condiment, because you do not want the flavor too tame!
