Peach Salsa

Peach Salsa by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Here is a quick and easy peach salsa recipe flavored with mint and ginger, perfect for your grilled meats. I saw a peach salsa on Simply Recipes a few days ago, and couldn’t wait to give it a try. This one’s a little different, I adjusted it to our taste. It’s a great way to get some fruit in your meal that is savory. I have noticed that my son has the same tendencies as me, he’s not too big on sweet things unless their wrapped in carbs (fruit baked goods) or it’s chocolate (preferably dark). So eating our weight in fresh sweet fruit, like my husband does, is not exactly our idea of a good time. But, if you add a savory flair to sweet fresh fruits, we’re all over it. Think salt and watermelon, yum!

I have also finally, after much deliberation, upgraded the computer I work on. I had an old powerbook that my husband passed down to me. A few years ago the computer was dropped, and we thought all hope was lost. He quickly went out and bought a new powerbook. Later on, he tried to see if he could fix the old one with a new hard drive, and it worked! Unfortunately, since then, between me, my son, and the dog, its been dropped over 20 times on the hard tile. It was a little worse for wear, then the dog slammed it on the floor. I picked it up, put it back, and I tripped over the cord, slamming it really good on the floor. It broke the power cord. Oops! So instead of going out and buying another 80 something dollar power cord for the 3rd time on a 7 + year old computer, I decided to throw in the towel and get a new desktop to replace it and our old desktop (an 11+ year old iMac). It also still works fine, but I decided it was time to upgrade, especially since we can still use my husband’s student discount.

    like the bite with the red onion and jalapeno – the ginger and mint are a little different and I like it a lot….

    We adore our iMac so I hope you are just as happy! And your salsa looks so bright and vibrant. This would be a wonderful way to use all of the peaches that are coming into season. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey Angie, I just wanted to drop by to see what your’e up to lately. This salsa looks beautiful (great photo) and, of course, delicious (smile). I make something similar, so I know how good this type of thing is…
    Oh, and congratulations on the computer-that’s nice. Hopefully, mine will last a bit longer, but I have a feeling I might have to be shopping for one soon too.

    This looks beautiful! And congrats on the new computer. I did the same last year and it was really the best decision and made writing life so much easier. My 11 year old iMac is getting sold at our upcoming garage sale as I just couldn’t bring myself to get rid of it then. Now? Its out of here!

    Congrats on your amazing computer upgrade! That is awesome. I have always used a Mac & I am drooling over that hot rod. Your peach salsa looks wonderful. Great addition with the mint. xo

    I just love the looks of this fruit salsa and can see it going very well with the grilled seafood that is on heavy dinnertime rotation at our house. What a wonderfully innovative and delicious-sounding combination of sweet, spicy, savory, herbal, and hot flavors you’ve used here. Many thanks for sharing this keeper recipe!

    I love fruit salsa’s like this but just started making them out of necessary this summer. My wife keeps getting free cases of Mango’s at the grocery store and I needed to come up with something. Now if she comes up with a free case of peaches I’m set.

    The peach salsa totally caught my eye – it looks like a perfect summer dish… and such a unique recipe too! Congratulations on the new computer… I got a new one recently as well (April) and it makes such a difference!

    Lovely! I wonder if other fruits would work as well? Apples. mango, paw paw?
    Nothing nicer than a fruity meal on a hot day.

    Also posted your link on our page

    Love your combination! The ginger adds an unexpected spicy twist. I used your recipe for an accompaniment to Tuna tacos at an impromptu party last night. Everyone LOVED it! The combination of foods I made last night inspired me to re-energize my abandoned blogging.
