Summer Fruit Salsa Recipe


Summer fruits are always delicious and welcome whether itís just to eat as is, or added to desserts or salads. The following Summer Fruit Salsa uses fresh peaches, sweet cherries, and mangos to advantage; it is great as an appetizer served with crisp pita chips, or makes a great sauce for grilled chicken and fish. Itís pretty, too, and isnít too sweet.

Summer Fruit Salsa is great for healthy eaters, dieters, and diabetics; it has virtually no fat, is low in calories, low in carbohydrates, and supplies fiber, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. It can also be made a day or so ahead (it gets darker red due to the cherries the longer it sits but is pretty both ways), so itís easy on the cook. No cooking is involved Ė the kitchen stays cool - and hands-on time is fairly minimal, involving only the chopping of a few fruits and vegetables. The peaches are peeled easily by placing them in boiling water for a minute, then plunging them in cold water.

This salsa will make a great addition to any barbecue or outdoor get-together. It also makes a good late night snack.

Makes about 4 cups salsa

3 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 mango, pitted, peeled, and diced
1 cup fresh sweet cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
4 fresh jalapeno peppers, cored, seeded, and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup red onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
  1. Place the peaches in a bowl and toss with the lime juice.

  2. Mix in the mango pieces, cherries, peppers, cilantro, and red onions.

  3. Toss with the vinegar and sugar.

  4. If thereís time, refrigerate an hour or so to allow flavors to meld.
