Hey BonBon Rose gals! Jackie Fo, event/wedding planner and blogger here with an absolutely perfect recipe for enjoying the ripe fruits of summer!
Like most people, I love a good bowl of chips and salsa. Whether it’s green salsa or red salsa, it gets me every time! I enjoy creating different types of salsas and my latest concoction is one of my best yet!
After stopping by a roadside peach stand on the way home from a lovely beach vacation, I had a big ole’ bag of ripe peaches. Instead of whipping up a cobbler, I decided to put the juicy fruit to work by slicing and dicing them into a fresh, chunky peach and avocado salsa. The result? An amazing sweet, tangy and tart salsa perfect for summer snacking.
4 ripe (but still slightly hard) peaches
1 red bell pepper
1 ripe (but still slightly hard) avocado
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded
1/2 red onion, diced
2 healthy sprigs of cilantro, coarsely chopped
Juice from 2 limes
Cinnamon Pita Chips for dipping
Peel the peaches. (This step is kind of annoying but oh so worth it!) Dice the peppers, onion and cilantro. Gently mix together with lime juice. Before serving, add the avocado gently so it doesn’t brown, adding more lime juice. Serve with cinnamon pita chips.
Serving this with cinnamon pita chips gives it a nice sweetness, plus the pita chips are hearty enough to dip without breaking. I used my leftover peach and avocado salsa as a topping for tilapia which was absolutely wonderful. I’m sure it can be used for fish, chicken and even just eaten alone as a nice side dish or fresh salad. Of course I suggest pairing this with a crisp white wine, a beautiful summer evening and lovely conversation! Enjoy!
