Fresh Balsamic Peach Salsa [With a Kick!]

Homemade Balsamic Peach Salsa

The middle of summer is good for a lot of things. Pools, BBQs, beach vacays, longer days… I could go on and on; summer, I am definitely a fan of you!

One thing that I love in the summer time is fresh peaches. Sure, I can eat a peach in the winter and be content, but there is something just so magical about a peach in the summer. They’re in season, for one, and you can wash the juice off your face by jumping in a pool!

Last night, I was craving shrimp. [surprise surprise, right 😉 ?] When looking through my past farmers market haul, I saw that I still had 4 ripe peaches I needed to use up. I decided on Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp & Peach Kabobs (recipe coming soon) topped with a Fresh Balsamic Peach Salsa.

Homemade Peach Salsa

What you need:

  • 2 ripe peaches [if they’re not ripe, they’ll be all rough and bitter- not what you want in a salsa!]
  • 1/2 jalapeno finely diced and deseeded [I learned my jalapeno cutting lesson…]
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 tablespoon balsamic vinegar* [more or less depending on taste buds]
  • Garlic powder & black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar

Simply dice up your fruits & veggies and toss in seasonings! This salsa gets better with time, so the longer you can let it sit, the better!

What would you top this on?
