Zamzows Table: Fall Peach Salsa

Zamzows Table: Fall Peach Salsa

When it comes to assembling a salsa, peaches might not be the first ingredient that comes to mind. Tomatoes, peppers, onions, and cilantro usually take the spotlight, while peaches often find their place in warm cobblers and alongside scoops of ice cream. However, a delightful surprise awaited me when our head of HR introduced a scrumptious salsa featuring fresh peaches.

Ingredients From the Garden:
- Cilantro
- 1 Jalapeno
- 2 lbs. of fresh peaches
- Half of a red onion
- 1 lb. of fresh tomatoes

From the Store:
- 1 Lime
- Salt and pepper to taste

1. Begin by dicing and chopping the cilantro, peaches, onion, pepper, and tomatoes. If you prefer a milder salsa, remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeno to reduce its heat.

2. Combine the chopped garden vegetables in a spacious mixing bowl. Squeeze in the juice from a single lime.

3. Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.

The allure of a garden-fresh salsa is undeniable. Crafted from simple ingredients, there's nothing quite like the vibrant interplay of flavors from fresh cilantro, zesty peppers, and ripe tomatoes. My initial skepticism about incorporating peaches was swiftly dispelled. The subtle sweetness contributed by the peaches proved to be just the right touch. It neither overwhelmed nor clashed; rather, it added a forward layer of flavor. The delightful sweetness emerged towards the end of each bite, providing a truly enjoyable taste experience.

With its unexpected yet harmonious blend of garden goodness, this Fall Peach Salsa has undoubtedly secured its place as a unique and cherished addition to our culinary repertoire.
