salsa fresca

Homemade salsa fresca is amazing and so easy to make! In this recipe, I added peaches to the classic list of ingredients. If you don't have peaches, you can leave them out or substitute mango. Since peaches aren't in season, I used a couple of slices from my bag of mixed frozen fruit.

Here's what you'll need for about 4 cups of salsa:
  • 4 small vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of cilantro, minced
  • 1/2 banana pepper, chopped (use less if you like it less spicy)
  • 1/4 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 peach, chopped
  • 1 lime
  • sea salt
Here's what to do (about 10 minutes):
  1. Soak the cilantro in a bowl of water for 5 minutes and repeat to remove sediment. 
  2. Add all ingredients (with the exception of the lime) to a mixing bowl.
  3. Squeeze the juice out of the lime into the bowl.
  4. Mix the salsa and let sit for at least one hour before serving. Refrigerate all unused portions for later enjoyment.
