Peach salsa key ingredients
Visit recipe card below ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️️ for printable amounts and instructions
- fresh peaches - I do not recommend frozen or canned peaches for this recipe.
- tomatoes (or bell pepper) - use tomatoes during peak season, otherwise, bell peppers can work nicely/
- red onion - or any kind of onion.
- fresh cilantro - if you're a cilantro lover, that is.
- lime juice - preferably fresh, but bottled will work too.
- jalapenos (or Serrano peppers)
- fresh garlic - make sure you chop or grate this very finely.
You may wonder if you can substitute garlic powder for fresh garlic or dried cilantro for fresh cilantro in this recipe. I recommend using only fresh ingredients in this salsa for maximum flavor and texture.
How is fruit salsa made?
- Dice the fruit - Dice the peaches and tomatoes, and combine them in a mixing bowl. Should you peel the peaches and tomatoes? Persona preference. I've done both. I love both.
- Prep other ingredients - zest and juice the lime, dice the onion, chop cilantro, mince the garlic, dice the jalapenos.
- Combine everything - Mix everything together in one bowl, cover and refrigerate.
Fresh peach salsa is made like pico de gallo and mango salsa, therefore not pureed. It's also called salsa Fresca (fresh salsa) because it’s never cooked.

Tips to select and prepare peaches for salsa
Tip 1: Select peaches that aren’t too ripe. Gently press your finger into the surface of peaches to gage firmness. If they indent too easily, they're too ripe to stay pretty in salsa, so look for slightly firmer, ripened peaches,
Tip 2: Rinse the surface of peaches under cool water and allow to dry.
Tip 3: Slice peaches in half, remove the pits, and continue dicing the flesh into 1/2“ chunks. No need to peel the peaches, unless you prefer to do so.
