Fresh Peach Salsa Recipe

The obsession with fruit-based salsas started with this Mango Salsa, became even stronger with this Mango Avocado Salsa, and has reached it’s all-time MAX with this Peach Salsa.

There’s just something about the sweet flavors of the peaches paired with the spicy bite of jalapeño peppers and vibrant cilantro. It’s as if your taste buds don’t know what’s coming!

And unlike other recipes that take a simple Pico de Gallo and toss in some peaches, this batch of peach salsa has a secret ingredient: just a hint of mint! The bright flavor pairs beautifully with the spicy kick of the peppers.

This recipe is the best during peach season when it’s easy to find juicy peaches everywhere. So, skip the jar of salsa and  enjoy the sweet heat of this homemade salsa recipe instead.

You can either serve this simple peach salsa with tortilla chips as a dip or top your favorite Blackened Mahi Mahi or Air Fryer Fish with a big spoonful.

Peach, jalapeño, onion, bell pepper, lime, and herbs are the ingredients for this dish.

Ingredients

The simple ingredients you need to make this easy peach salsa recipe include:

  • Peaches. It’s best if you use fresh instead of frozen peaches, as frozen will be soft upon thawing. Pick ones that are ripe but still on the firmer side, so they’ll be easier to cut into. If they’re a little too firm, learn how to ripen peaches. You can peel the peaches if you prefer, but feel free to leave the skin intact for more fiber and a pretty color. You can use white peaches, but the flavor and look of this mild salsa will be slightly different.
  • Jalapeño. Finely diced jalapeño peppers add a spicy kick to this salsa. Add more for extra spice, or even sub in a hotter pepper like serrano. The level of heat is a matter of personal preference. For a tangy twist, try pickled jalapeños.
  • Onion. Red onion is the best option for its flavor and look, but you can go with yellow, sweet, or white if needed.
  • Bell pepper. A red bell pepper adds beautiful color, but you can opt for yellow, orange, or green if needed.
  • Lime. Fresh lime juice is best, but bottled will also work in a pinch.
  • Fresh herbs. Both chopped cilantro and mint are used in this recipe. While mint isn’t usually in salsa, you might find it adds a unique and flavorful twist to this recipe.

How to Make Peach Salsa

Below you’ll find the simple steps to make peach salsa at home:

Prep the Ingredients

First, you want to get everything ready. 

I recommend leaving the skin on, but you can peel the peaches if you wish.

Slice the fresh ripe peaches into small pieces that are roughly the same size.

Then, dice the onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño.

Finally, chop the cilantro and mint.

Combine Everything

Carefully add the peaches, jalapeño, onion, bell pepper, and herbs to a large mixing bowl.

Gently stir the ingredients.

Drizzle fresh lime juice over the top and mix to combine.

You can serve this fruity salsa as an easy appetizer with your favorite tortilla chips, or on top of your favorite proteins.

Cook’s tip: Be sure to mix in the lime juice quickly. Its citric acid is one of the best ways to keep the peaches from browning too soon.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to prep ahead of time: You can chop the peaches, onion, and peppers up to 1 to 2 days beforehand. Simply keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them. Or, prepare this salsa the day before to let the flavors marry.
  • How to store: Keep this dish tightly covered in the fridge for up to 2 to 3 days—any longer and the peaches will begin to break down and the salsa will be somewhat watery.
  • How to freeze: Freezing will affect the texture of the salsa, but you can keep it in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 to 3 months.

Can you freeze peach salsa?

While you can freeze mango salsa, be aware it will affect the texture. Place in a freezer-safe airtight container, then cover the salsa with a piece of wax or parchment paper so it touches the ingredients before sealing it with the lid. Store in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. When you are ready to enjoy it, place the salsa in the fridge until thawed.

Peach Salsa is a sweet and savory dip and topping you can enjoy anytime.

Do you have to peel peaches for salsa?

You can peel peaches for salsa, but you definitely don’t need to. The skin adds some extra nutrients along with flavor and texture.

What is peach salsa made of?

Peach salsa is usually a combination of peaches, jalapeño peppers, onions, bell peppers, and herbs. This recipe calls for both cilantro and mint for a unique flavor twist.

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Small is key. Finely dice the peppers and onions to pack a flavorful bite. You can even add in some red pepper flakes for a real kick.
  • Be picky. Choose a sweet yet firm peach for the best texture.
  • Let it rest. The flavors of this salsa marry as it sits in the fridge, so make it a little early.
  • Take a dip. Pair this recipe with homemade tortilla chips for a fantastic snack!
  • Get creative. While this salsa is delicious on tacos, try it on spicy fish or even pork chops for a real treat.
