Peaches, Peaches and More Peaches


I have a basket full of peaches!  There are so many recipes I could use for the abundance of peaches sitting on my table.  Today I chose to make “Peach-Mango Salsa” to accompany the roasted chicken I was preparing for dinner. It is one of those days where I dream up a recipe to facilitate the use of some ingredient on hand – in this case, PEACHES!

This recipe could easily be adapted to your specific taste.  Just use your imagination!  I like Mangos so I decided to add one to the salsa.  Fresh basil, growing on the patio and some fresh ginger add a wonderful flavor and fragrance to this salsa.  The heady, peppery fragrance of fresh basil turns me on and is a perfect companion to the fresh peaches and mangos.  Serve this salsa with chicken, seafood or munch on it with fresh-baked pita chips.  It is a refreshing, summery salsa, sure to bring a smack to your lips and a smile to your face.

Enjoy!

  2. That looks great. We did something similar last night with grilled chicken and will have the leftovers tonight with shrimp tacos. I love peach season.

    • Thank you! I’m doing shrimp tonight with peach salsa again – it’s hard to over dose on fresh peaches. Think I might just pick up a few tortillas and do tacos as well. Thanks for stopping by!
