Farm Factor: Peach Salsa Recipe

Posted by Robert Nyerick, Chef  |  August 03, 2012

This salsa is a great way to enjoy summer peaches. It is fresh and full of flavor and I recommend it served with grilled fish. It is also a great appetizer when served with warm tortilla chips.

Tips about peaches:

  • Select peaches that are free of bruises and have a deep, fruity aroma.
  • If fruit is to be used immediately, select peaches that yield to gentle pressure along their seams and are slightly soft; avoid any that feel very soft.
  • Ripen firm peaches in loosely closed paper (not plastic) bag at room temperature for 1 to 2 days; check daily for ripeness. Peaches are ripe when they yield to gentle pressure.
  • While fresh peaches may be served chilled or at room temperature, their flavor intensifies at room temperature.

Peach Salsa


  • 3 ripe organic peaches, peeled, pitted, and medium diced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 ripe heirloom tomato medium diced
  • 1 fresh Poblano Chili, grilled, seeded and small diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey (warmed)


Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
