This Peach Salsa really speaks for itself...it is refreshing, colorful, sweet, and juicy with a tiny bit of a kick! The whole family loves this dip and you can make it as mild or as spicy as you like.
We are into summer and I'm constantly dreaming about sweet and juicy peaches...the ultimate summer fruit. They really are nature's candy! If you've tried my Strawberry Salsa you know just how good a slightly sweet dip can be, especially combined with a bit of spice and salty chips. The perfect combination! Salsas are so easy to make that they're perfect for kids to make with you. They love stirring while I stay busy dicing...and they steal spoonfuls of the salsa the entire time!

Health Benefits of Peaches
Peaches offer important nutrients, including fiber and potassium. They are a good source of vitamin C (promotes immune and skin health) and vitamin A (important for skin, hair, eye, teeth, bone and vision health), and they also contain vitamin E, which offers protection from some chronic diseases and helps protect our bodies from cell damage that can lead to cancer, heart disease and cataracts as we age. To get the most nutritional benefit out of peaches (and to save some prep time!), leave the peel on for added fiber.
How to Choose Perfect Peaches
A good, ripe peach should feel heavy for its size. Squeeze it gently to feel for firmness; it should have a slight give without being mushy. The skin should be blemish-free, fuzzy, and firm. If the peaches are not yet ripe, store them in a paper bag to speed the ripening process! Once ripe, keep them at room temperature and eat within a few days. You can also keep them in your refrigerator to slow the ripening process a bit.
