The Freshman Cook: 2023

Welcome to The Freshman Cook! I am so glad to see you! It has been quite a while since I have been blogging, and I am thrilled to be back in the kitchen cooking, baking and mixing up recipes to share. 

 If you are a peach lover this Peachy Salsa will make you very happy! If you are not crazy for peaches, it is definitely worth a try, and I just might change your mind about this refreshing fruit!

I wanted to make a peach salsa today because, first of all, I love peaches! They are full of flavor, can be used for so many great recipes, and I have never met anyone who didn’t enjoy peaches!

Peaches are the perfect way to refresh on a hot summer day, and there are a million ways to enjoy them! Sure, that number might be a little high, but there are some very tasty ways to enjoy juicy peaches!

Peachy Salsa

 1/2 cup chopped Tomato

1/2 cup chopped Onion

1.8 ounces chopped Red Pepper

5 ounces chopped Jalapeno

1 cup diced mix of White and Yellow Peaches

a few leaves of Cilantro, cut into very small pieces

Lime Juice

Salt 

Black Pepper

For your info: If you like more heat, use more jalapeno pieces. However, I would still chop the pieces very small! If you like less onion, cut a little less. As you are putting the recipe together, add more if you want or use less if that is what makes it work for you. This is the type of recipe that will work with changes, and still taste amazing!

I like to start recipes that have a lot of chopping involved by cutting all of the ingredients at the beginning. If you can’t do all the cutting at once, consider cutting the ingredients, and place them in small bowls, or whatever works for you. Cover them with plastic and refrigerate them until everything is cut and you are ready to use the ingredients.

Start by cutting the tomato, onion, red pepper and jalapeno. Add the lime juice and stir together. Add the salt and black pepper and mix it in also. Peel and cut the peaches from the stone. Chop the pieces into small bites that can be eaten easily. Place in a bowl that leaves room for mixing the ingredients together.

  Add the tomato, red pepper, jalapeno and white

  onion to the bowl.

To serve, I used small plastic cups, and I placed a scoop tortilla in each cup, along with a plastic spoon to serve these treats! The scoops are amazing with the fruit, and they look festive and tasty! You could add a couple more scoops in each cup to ensure that your guests have plenty. You could also serve a basket or bowl with additional scoops so everyone has plenty!

I hope you enjoyed this easy appetizer recipe! If you have any questions or issues with the recipe, please email me at thefreshmancook@hotmail.com
