Salsa should be at the core of every gathering, right? Right. I love a good plate of chips and salsa, but sometimes salsa can be so, well, boring. Yeah, I said it. But really, salsa is supposed to be refreshing, juicy and flavorful.
With a little knife work, it’s not hard to put together your own salsa, so I say nix the store-bought jars whenever possible. They’re so limiting! And how can you even choose between restaurant-style, homestyle, chunky, mild, medium and spicy? You can yield so many different flavors when you mix it yourself. And you get to decide how spicy you want your salsa to be.
This version combines juicy peaches and garden-fresh cherry tomatoes with onion, sweet peppers, salt, herbs, lime juice and olive oil. The resulting flavor is sweet and sour — a refreshing change for this common appetizer. Make this Tangy Peach Salsa and all your guests will stand around it in awe of you. Make this salsa and see if there’s any left for your guests after you try it. No, really. It’s that good. Give it a go before peaches are no longer in season! // susannah
