Well, here it is. The peach salsa I promised a week ago (maybe, a bit longer). It was made with the wonderful sweetness of Colorado peaches and did not last long after I set it on the table.

Peaches are probably one of my favorite stone fruits, but I especially love Colorado peaches. I know I am not alone in this. Over the summer, when we were at the Boulder farmer’s market , the line for organic Colorado peaches was down the block and around the corner from the truck. With a market that starts at 9:00 they were sold out in 30 minutes. That’s love.

I read recently that it is the hot days and cold Colorado nights that create the sugary sweetness these peaches are known for. In this salsa, paired with red onion, jalepeno, and a squeeze of lime juice the sweetness is balanced. I put the peaches on the grill for just a few minutes to bring out even more of their flavor, this is just bonus, not a have to when making this recipe.

Peach Salsa

1 jalepeno, ribs removed and deseeded, chopped

Add a can of black beans if you’d like, for a bit more color and added flavor.

  1. This looks so so so good! Seems like both the flavors and colors will knock out any other salsa!
