Peach Salsa is juicy, fresh and sweet with a kick of heat. It is truly summer in a bowl! Serve peach salsa with tortilla chips or on top of chicken, pork or salmon.

In our house, adults and big kids are huge fans of fruity salsas like mango salsa and pineapple salsa!

Peach Salsa Recipe

Peach salsa  is so good that I am willing to sacrifice fresh peaches for it (and for Instant Pot peach cobbler, too!). If you know me, you know I am obsessed with seasonal fruit. I refuse to cook it. We only eat raw fresh local fruit “to stock up” our taste buds for winter.

This peach salsa is great for a summer dinner (which is often the case in my house), easy enough for a snack with chips and perfect for a summer get-together, party or potluck. No matter how or where you eat this, it will be a hit!

  • Peaches: The best peaches to use for salsa are soft and give in a bit to the touch. Any variety of peaches work well in this salsa. You do not have to peel the peaches. Once diced, you will not taste the skin.
  • Traditional Mexican Flavors: Red onion,  tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno or habanero pepper
  • Variations: You can add bell pepper, avocado, mango, pineapple, mint or ginger (all to your taste liking).peaches, tomatoes, cilantro, lime, jalapeno

  • Dice peaches: Make sure your knife is sharp before dicing peaches so you don’t end up with mushy salsa.
  • Chop remaining ingredients: Chop tomatoes, onions, cilantro and peppers to roughly the same size to ensure you get all the amazing flavours in one bite.
  • Combine: Stir all the chopped ingredients together and add lime juice, salt and pepper.
  • Refrigerate salsa: It is best to refrigerate peach salsa for at least 15 minutes so all the flavours can combine.
