Freshen up your Summer meals with this fresh fruit peach mango salsa. It’s sweet with just a hint of spice – perfect for your backyard parties!
We just did our annual peach run. Our house is stocked full of peaches now! A few years ago, we found out about a company called Tree Ripe. If you live in WI, MN, IA, IL or MI – you absolutely have to check them out. Especially if you’re a peach, blueberry, pecan, orange, or grapefruit fan.
Essentially, they work with farmers from Georgia and Florida and bring those that live in the cold, Midwest states (me!) fresh fruit. Like, really fresh fruit. As in, just a few days after it’s picked fresh fruit. While I love that we can grow corn and all kinds of fun things here in WI, you cannot beat fresh Georgia peaches (or pecans. Or Florida oranges.) I learned that the hard way after our road trip last year and we did not buy nearly enough to keep me satisfied. By the time we were on our way back home, I had very little of our Florida and Georgia grown yummies. I was SO bummed.
But thanks to their trucks, we are now stocked with peaches and pecans for the year! Time to get canning and freezing now.
Before we do that, one of the things I really love making with our fresh peaches is fresh salsa. Truth is, I’m a bit of a salsa snob. Every time we go out for Mexican and they offer chips and salsa, I pick it apart. Too watery, too spicy, too chunky, too little flavor – the list is endless. I’m sure I’m a peach to be around every time we go out to eat. (Pun totally intended.)
So I actually love making my own. And this peach mango salsa is pretty much the stuff my snobby salsa dreams are made of. Tons of flavor, good consistency and just a hint of spice that ensures it doesn’t just taste like a fruit salad. Oh. My. YUM!
Plus, this peach mango salsa just kinda screams Summer. It’s perfect for a bit of a twist on your traditional salsa and in tacos (especially seafood ones.) Add in the star chips and you’ve got this awesome patriotic dish that is perfect for the 4th of July!
