Peach Salsa

Dressings & Dips

Sweet, juicy and delicious peaches are most commonly used in desserts - and don't get me wrong, I love a good peach dessert, but today I thought I would change things up and add peaches to something unexpected...salsa.

Now if you are a Seinfeld fan like me, you may remember George telling Jerry "Salsa is now the number one condiment in America." To which Jerry responded "...that's because people like to say salsa..."

I can't verify if salsa is the #1 condiment - although it definitely should be but I do agree that it is fun to say "salsa". Say it a few times with a smile ;-)

Why is salsa so great?

It contains healthy ingredients like lycopene rich tomatoes and organ cleansing cilantro and onion. The not so healthy part (which is my favourite part) - is the chips, so try to indulge in them moderately.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 2 lightly ripe peaches*
  • 1/4 of a red onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • fresh ground sea salt & pepper to taste


Method

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined.

Tips & Nutrition

*try to use peaches that aren't too ripe as they will get mushy, especially if it lasts until day two!

How can you enjoy salsa even healthier?

  • Try it with a baked black bean or sweet potato chip instead of a fried corn or tortilla chip. 
  • Dip cut up veggies in salsa - red peppers work great. 
  • Cut a cucumber lengthwise, carve out the seeds to make a little "boat" and fill it with salsa. 
  • Sauté zucchini noodles with a little olive oil and then top with salsa. 
  • Make a taco salad with lettuce and veggies as the base and then top with salsa and a few crunched up chips.
  • Top a baked potato with some avocado and salsa.
