6 Ingredient Fresh Peach Salsa

Tree ripened sweet peaches shine in my fresh peach salsa recipe!

Hi friends!

Don’t you just love peach season?  Peaches are one of those foods that are really best eaten in those magic dog days summer months when they come straight off the trees of the South Carolina or Georgia.  Find the good ones and they are so juicy you need a paper towel to eat them.  They just ooze Southern charm.

Sure… you can get them other times and from other places but they just aren’t the same.   The good news is the long-awaited peach season is here and fully intend on going peach crazy.  First up is my pretty darn delicious Fresh Peach Salsa recipe.

Here’s why you’ll love my Fresh Peach Salsa recipe…

I’ve shared a lot of fresh fruit salsa over the years, but it all started with my Fresh Peach Salsa recipe.  I love it because it’s basically an excuse for me to eat two of my favorite things at once… Mexican food and fruit!  The recipe only calls for 6 ingredients and they are simple and easy to find.

My trick for making this easily is to use my small food chopper.   I still don’t have a big food processor (although I’d really like one!) but this small one is cheap, easy to clean and super handy.  I put everything for the salsa in it except for the peaches.  It creates a perfect finely chopped up consistency for the salsa.  Just don’t over chop!  It also saves lots and lots of chopping time.

After I do the shortcut chop on everything else, I cut the peaches by hand in larger chunks so they really shine!  This fresh Peach Salsa recipe is totally worth the time.  Look how pretty it looks!

This salsa works great with chips or crackers as an appetizer.  It also pairs delightfully with shrimp or fish! It’s best eaten within a day of making it, or the peaches break down too much.

Any way you serve it this classic Fresh Peach Salsa recipe is a total crowd pleaser and one of my all-time favorites.  It is literally like a bright summer Southern day in a jar!

    This looks so, so amazing! <3 I love fresh peaches-they're one of the greatest things about summer! (Fresh fruits in general, really. <3) Can't wait to make this! (They'd be perfect for the fish tacos we were planning to make for dinner!)

    I love eating salsa with my eggs… it’s a great alternative to ketchup, way healthier and lot more flavorful! I’ve never had peach salsa, but I make a mean mango salsa in the summer. Think I’ll be needing to try this one out : )

    • JulieWunder July 24, 2015 at 6:01 pm - Reply

      Love that idea! I’ll eat salsa with anything and everything!

    I LOVE peach salsa. I used to buy the Newmans kind, but I’d much rather make it from scratch. I haven’t just had a good chips and salsa snack in ages (definitely not since I’ve moved overseas). YUM!

    • JulieWunder July 22, 2015 at 6:36 pm - Reply

      I didn’t even know it came in a jar! I love this fresh version– super simple! I hope you can get fresh peaches over there!

    I’ve never had peach salsa (that I can remember) but this looks so delicious and refreshing! Perfect for a summer party or get together!

      I had never had it before I started making this! So yummy. I hope you will give it a try.

    Glad you are feeling better. It must be the peaches and all : )

  45. ooh I like the looks of that little chopper!

      Thanks! It’s one of my favorite little kitchen tools!

    Eat more salsa–antioxidants and such and just general yumminess will help with recovery!

    Glad that you are feeling better.
    That little food chopper looks like a winner.
