Fresh Peach Salsa Recipe
A few weeks ago we were at Home Depot and the kids asked us if we could buy some pepper plants. The pepper plants were on sale for 2 bucks each, so we said sure. I mean if they died, the investment wasn’t too high, right?? I have never grown any for of fruit or vegetable on my own, so this was going to be new for us all.
We made a cute little gardening box and got to planting.
Much to our surprise, a few weeks later we had a bunch of peppers! We planted habanero, jalapeno, chili peppers, and shishito peppers. The next part was trying to figure out what to do with them as they were ready to be picked. So, we have been making fresh salsa on a pretty regular basis. It is so easy and I can have a batch ready in under 5 minutes with my handy, dandy Chop-n-Prep Chef that I got from the Food Wine Conference. I am sure you can use any vegetable chopper, but I am loving my Chop-n-Prep Chef, everything is perfectly sized and clean up is a breeze!
Now, onto that salsa recipe. We used some of our fresh peppers, a tomato, a little onion, garlic, and a peach. The sweetness of the peach was the perfect balance to the heat of the peppers. You will see that I left the skin of the peach on, I love peach skin, if you don’t, feel free to remove it. I will be honest, I have never seen a shishito pepper at the store before, so if you don’t see them either, I will tell you that it is a mild pepper…great flavor, but definitely not the heat of a chili pepper and especially not of a jalapeno or a habanero.

- 1 chili pepper
- 1 shishito pepper
- juice from 1/4 lime
