New Recipe Becomes Most Requested
Once I had this recipe figured out, it has become one of the most requested food for a party.
If you are entertaining at all this summer, this is the perfect addition to an easy summer party menu. Whenever I make this salsa and bring it to a party, it is one of those recipes that just bring a smile to everyone’s face. Family and friends just can’t seem to get enough.
Choosing Fresh Peaches
The two peaches that were on my counter waiting to be eaten were still fresh and just the perfect amount of ripe. For this recipe, you will want to choose peaches that are ripe but on the firm side yet. If the peaches are too soft, they can get mushy in the salsa.
Therefore, choose peaches that smell good and have slight if any give when you gently squeeze them. Both yellow and white peaches will work well for this salsa recipe.
Preparing Peaches for This Salsa
The peaches I used today had a smooth skin; therefore, I left the skin on and proceeded to dice them for the recipe. However, if I had purchased peaches that had the fuzzy skin, I would have peeled them first.
Here is how to peel the skin off the peaches that are still firm for this recipe. The peeler is great for when the peach is firm but still ripe. The skin should easily pull away from the flesh. A paring knife will also help remove the skin from any stubborn areas.
