I served this peach salsa with the pulled chicken quesadillas yesterday. It is easy to open up a bottle of salsa but it is never as delicious as the one you can make at home. It is super simple but somehow a lot of people are very nervous about making salsas at home.
Well, I am here to convince you that these sauces are very easy to put together. I had lots of peaches in the fridge. All I did was add some chopped cilantro, green onions, garlic, lime juice, honey and smoked paprika to the chopped peaches. That was it… The key is to let it sit at room temperature for a few hours before serving. The flavors blend together beautifully and the salsa complements the quesadillas really well. You can also serve the salsa with chips or even a piece of fish.
- 4 to 5 medium peaches, chopped into ¼ inch squares
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Juice of a large lime
- 1 to 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 to 2 teaspoons salt
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
Add the peaches, onions and garlic in a small bowl. Add the lime juice, honey, paprika, salt and cilantro. Mix well and keep aside for at least an hour before serving.
