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.
