grilled peach salsa

 grilled peach salsa

We love the combination of mint and peaches for a different take on salsa, but cilantro works just as well. Grilling the peaches adds a nice, unexpected char and flavor to the salsa.

  • 4 peaches
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable (or canola) oil
  • 1 small red onion, cut into thick slices
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint
  • Juice from 1-2 limes
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat. 
  2. Cut peaches in half lengthwise and remove pits. Brush both sides of peaches, onion slices, and jalapeño with oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place peaches, onion slices, and jalapeño on grill and cook each until lightly charred on both sides, 5-10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, dice and place in a medium bowl. Add mint and lime juice (to taste) and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Serves 4-6.
