Summer is a wonderful tine to enjoy fresh salsa. It’s so flavorful and delicious! Plus, it’s easy to make.

However, you may want a change from tomato-based salsas. (I’m sure that’s mortifying to some die-hard salsa fans!) If so, this fruit-based salsa will be a welcome change.

Made with fresh peaches and strawberries, it makes good use of in-season produce and adds an unexpected sweetness to meals.

To make this Strawberry-Peach salsa quickly, you will need a food processor. The wonderful thing about using a food processor to make salsa is that the fruit and vegetables need only to be roughly chopped. The strawberries can even be thrown in whole.

A high-powered blender will also work.

The salsa can also be made by hand, it just requires a little more chopping. Further instructions are given below.

Strawberry-Peach Salsa Recipe
 
Makes 2½-3 cups.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 2.5-3 cups
Ingredients
  • 1 cup peaches (about 2 peaches, roughly chopped)
  • 2 cups strawberries, stems removed
  • ⅓ of a medium green pepper, chopped into large chunks
  • ½ small onion, chopped (white or red onion will work. Red onion provides a stronger flavor)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • ½ - 1 jalapeño pepper (or more, depending on how hot you like your salsa)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil or avocado oil
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Close lid and pulse 5 to 10 times. The magic number for me is usually 8.
Notes
To make salsa by hand: chop the strawberries, peaches, and green pepper into bite-sized chunks and mince the onion and jalapeño pepper. Then gently stir in the honey, oil, and lemon.
