I look forward to peach season each year. No other food quite says “Summer” like a fresh, ripe, and juicy peach. While we don’t have peaches from our own fruit trees quite yet, we do have access to great quantities of Missouri and Illinois peaches, purchased in bushel quantities. We eat them fresh, cooked in cobblers, and mixed in this amazing peach salsa recipe.
(And check out my collection of dozens of fresh, cooked, and preserved peach recipes.)
This Peach Basil Salsa recipe is perfect on grilled white fish, or as a dip for tortilla chips. If you want, add a jalapeno pepper or two to spice things up, or make the recipe as is for a sweet and savory flavor.
Peach Salsa Recipe
4 ripe Peaches, pitted and diced
3 tbsp minced fresh Basil

Combine ingredients and enjoy!
