Spicy Peach Jalapeno Salsa
Tip: Soak the red onion in a cup of water for 10-15 minutes before using to reduce its strong flavor and odor.
For best results, make this salsa the night before serving so the flavors have a chance to blend. This will also soften the peaches and onion to a nice consistency.
6 fresh peaches, pits removed and cut into small pieces
3 T. fresh lime juice
½ medium shallot, minced
3 T. red onion, cut into small, thin slices
1-2 t. jalapeno peppers, seeds and veins removed, and very finely minced
3 T. fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed and chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and stir to combine.
(Start with a very small amount of jalapeno pepper and taste before adding more).
Season with salt and pepper.
Cover and store in the refrigerator overnight or on the counter at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
