Peach Salsa – Fresh from Sweet Berry Farm!

IMG_7504

The countdown has begun to the hub beginning his new job! So we are making the most out of every day in our new hometown – this past week we decided to drive up to sunny Newport, Rhode Island for a beach day! I plopped on the sand reading my book (get involved with August book club here) & the hub quickly geared up to go surfing. After a few hours with my toes in the sand & a nice glow from the sun, we decided to fill our bellies with fresh lobster & summer corn at Anthony’s Seafood!

To only make the day better we ended up at Sweet Berry Farm to pick fresh fruit! I love the idea of picking your groceries & knawing on them at the same time – so this is the perfect place for me! Needless to say, we now have bowls full of blueberries in our fridge & fresh peaches out the wazoo! Literally, so much fruit that I even had to freeze some!

Anywho, the other night we had guests over, so I decided to whip up fresh peach salsa! Beyond simple & such a great twist to the traditional tomato salsa.

Lets get to it…

  1. In a large bowl combine: 4 peeled/diced peaches, 3T diced red pepper, 2T diced red onion, 1T finely diced jalapeño & 2T  chopped cilantro
  2. Mix in juice from 2 limes, 2t honey & 1 minced garlic clove

Stir the juices & stick in the fridge til you are ready to serve (I let it chill for roughly an hour & it was perfect).
