We bought a bunch of perfectly ripe peaches at the market this weekend, and I knew I wanted to use some to make a salsa. This was was so good you could really just eat it with a spoon, but I served it with a roast chicken breast. I knew I would be alone for dinner tonight, and I have no problem making a special dinner for one. In fact, I like it. Usually, I just make something J hates, but since I knew he would love this I made extra to send with him for lunch. I will be making more of this salsa next week and hopefully buying extra peaches for making jam. I’m feeling ambitious.
Peach and Basil Salsa
3 1/2 cups of diced yellow peaches (about 3-4 peaches depending on size)
1/4 cup diced onion
juice of one lime
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup basil, lightly packed
pinch of salt
Toss all the chopped ingredients together with the lime juice, salt and cayenne pepper. Allow to sit for about five minutes prior to serving. It is best served the same day, but you can refrigerate it overnight if necessary.
