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.
2 - 3 ripe, yet firm peaches, diced (you can leave the skin on or off)
1/4 red onion, chopped
3 tablespoons mint leaves
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
a pinch of kosher salt
the juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 jalapeno, diced and seeded (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Salsa is best when it is left to refrigerate a few hours before serving.
