Very Flavorful Peach Salsa Recipe

This peach salsa recipe is very tasty and goes very well with shrimp chalupas or in fact any Mexican food recipes containing fish or seafood. Peaches, onion, limejuice, salt, and cilantro are combined for a simple yet very flavorful peach salsa recipe. There are other fruit salsa recipes you could try if you are looking for something that will be nice with fish. Pineapple, apples, pears, and plums can all be used to make unusual Mexican salsa recipes. You can use one fruit or combine different ones. Fruit tends to be great with sharp flavors like onion and lime juice.

If you like to make Mexican food recipes, homemade salsa recipes are a must. They are so simple to prepare and they taste fresh and wonderful with any Mexican dish.

The cilantro goes incredibly well with the peach and really brings out its flavor. The peach gives a sweet taste and the onion and limejuice add a sour flavor, making this peach salsa very well balanced. You might even like to try it with non-Mexican recipes such as an accompaniment for spicy chicken or beef curry. It keeps well for a few days in the refrigerator.

A lot of home cooks like to throw the same ingredients together every time they make salsa, namely tomato, onion, cilantro, lime, and chilies, and there is nothing wrong with that, but sometimes it can be good to change the recipe and try something brand new – still technically a salsa (since salsa means sauce and anything goes) but something different.

This recipe offers a brand new experience because the peach does not complement the tomato found in most salsa recipes. Instead it replaces it. Tomato is sweet, not as sweet as peach perhaps but sweet nonetheless. In addition the peach you onion and lime, both of which offer piquant tang for contrast, and some aromatic cilantro to add more to the distinctive Mexican appeal of the dish.

Easy Peach Salsa Recipe
Summary: Peach comes together with onion, lime and cilantro, to make this aromatic and flavorful salsa. Featuring neither chilies nor tomatoes, this is deliciously unusual and appealingly sweet.

Photo Description:

Peach salsa is a sweeter, milder take on the classic tomato salsa which usually contains some degree of spice in the form of chili peppers. This one is very different, in that the only ingredients apart from the peaches are onion, cilantro and lime, to keep the focus on the peaches and the flavor very simple. As you can imagine, this is delicious with any fish dish, or you could offer it alongside your favorite cheese, or with tortilla chips. This recipe will serve 4 if you are serving it with fish or chicken, or perhaps 2 or 3 if you have it as a dip. The photo shows a chef chopping the onion to go into the salsa mixture.
