peach salsa ...

I love fresh peaches, and I have started seeing peaches pop up here and there!  Peach season is one I definitely look forward to!
We have been taking full advantage of nice summer nights, and we have been preparing our dinners on the grill.  Salmon is a staple in our household, and last night I made some yummy peach salsa to dress up our salmon and couscous dinner.   This salsa would also go great with chicken, or some tortilla chips!
{Peach Salsa}
1 large peach, peel and diced small (or 2 medium peaches)
1 large avocado, diced small (or 2 small avocados)
1/2 red onion, diced small
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
juice of 1 lime
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of fresh ground pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 of a yellow pepper, chopped (can do a red pepper instead)
place all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir.  (*add the avocados last so they won’t get mushy.  this would also be good with an addition of cherry tomatoes chopped in half)
serve with tortilla chips, fish, meat, on a salad, or tacos.
enjoy!
