Peach Salsa – Made with fresh peaches! The best way to send off summer. I just love peach season!
Fresh Peach Salsa
Alright! Peach season is about the wrap up but before we let that happen, this peach salsa needs to happen in your kitchen! It’s easy, it’s fresh and it’s amazing with chips, on tacos… the options are endless! It’s kinda like a pico de Gallo but there are peaches instead of tomatoes. It’s so good!
I always buy a box of Utah peaches in August. We have a local lady that brings in trucks of Utah fruit and it’s just the best. I always look forward to it. I also like to get pears & berries too!

This fresh peach salsa is the perfect way to enjoy your summer peaches. The red pepper and onion give it a nice crunch. The cilantro & lime add great flavor. Easy & fresh!
- 4 peaches (medium-sized)
- 1 red onion
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 lime
- 1/2 cup cilantro (loosely packed)
- 1/4 tsp. chili powder (optional)
- tortilla chips
Peel and chop the peaches. Place in a medium-sized bowl. (I like to cut the peaches into wedges, then peel each piece before cutting it up. You could also boil the peaches for 30 seconds (until the skin splits, then remove with a slotted spoon right away to ice water to stop them from cooking. The skin will come off easily this way.)
Dice the red onion & red pepper into small pieces and add to the bowl of peaches. Dice up the jalapeño and remove the seeds if you don't want it too spicy. Add some seeds if you like a little more spice. Add to the bowl. (Make sure you wash your hands after handling the jalapeno!)
Remove the cilantro leaves from the stem (don't worry if you don't remove it perfectly). Chop the cilantro up and add it to the bowl.
Squeeze a lime (I like to use a small citrus press!) into the bowl and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the chili powder if using. Gently stir, cover & refrigerate or serve immediately. Serve with tortilla chips, tacos etc.
