I first had Peach Salsa a few years ago at a friend’s barbecue, and now I make it every chance I get. It’s sweet, a little spicy, and so refreshing. I’ll be eating it as much as I can this summer, scooping it up with tortilla chips and piling it onto grilled salmon.

I’m a big fan of homemade salsa, whether it’s tomato, corn, black bean, or watermelon. (See? Big fan!) However, this Peach Salsa has to be my current favorite. It’s no-cook, ready in 15 minutes, and so fresh, with peaches, red onion, tomato, jalapeño, bell pepper, and cilantro. Once you chop everything up and toss it with lime juice, that’s it! I love this peach salsa recipe for fish and recently served it with grilled shrimp and fish tacos. My kids ate them up!

  • No-cook: This Peach Salsa only needs a knife, cutting board, and mixing bowl. There’s no need to turn on the oven (always a bonus for me during the summer).
  • Easy: Like I said, this recipe requires just 15 minutes of your time and some chopping!
  • Versatile: I’ve scooped this up with tortilla chips, had it on fish, enjoyed it in a burrito bowl, put it alongside grilled chicken, and more. I haven’t found a way to eat this Peach Salsa that I didn’t love.

Ingredients to Make Peach Salsa

Ingredients to make recipe: Tomato, salt, pepper, red onion, garlic cloves, limes, peaches, jalapeño, and red bell pepper.
  • Peaches: Ripe peaches should be slightly soft to the touch.
  • Red onion and jalapeño: This adds a nice bite to the salsa—a little spice to go with the sweet ingredients.
  • Red bell pepper and tomato: These are my veggies of choice for this salsa. The red bell pepper adds crunch, and the tomato pairs surprisingly well with the peaches!
  • Garlic: Mincing the garlic makes it pleasant to eat here! No one wants to bite into a big chunk of raw garlic (at least I don’t).
  • Cilantro: Fresh cilantro adds a ton of flavor…and it’s a non-negotiable for me in almost any salsa.
  • Limes: Look for limes that feel thin-skinned and slightly soft. These will be the juiciest.
  • Swap out the peaches. You could use diced nectarines, pineapple, or mango instead.
  • Add in other veggies. Try adding corn kernels, chopped cucumber, and/or diced avocado to this Peach Salsa. You could also substitute these for the red bell pepper and tomato!
  • Make it spicier. Add a pinch or two of chili powder or taijin, mix, taste, and put in more if needed.

How to Make Peach Salsa

  1. Place the peaches, red onion, jalapeño, red pepper, garlic, and cilantro into a large bowl.
  2. Add the lime juice, salt, and pepper and mix well to combine.

Tips for Making the Best Peach Salsa Recipe

  1. Remove the seeds from the jalapeño. This is where the pepper’s heat is. I like to split the jalapeño in half lengthwise, then use a paring knife to slice out the core of seeds or use a spoon to scoop them out. If you like spicier Peach Salsa, you can keep the seeds in.
  2. Soak the onions. Sometimes, I find red onions to be too pungent! If I want them milder, I’ll soak the chopped red onions in ice water for 10 to 15 minutes, then drain.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I store leftover peach salsa?

Store any leftover peach salsa in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days. The flavors may intensify as it sits, which makes it even tastier!

Can I make peach salsa ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare peach salsa a few hours in advance. In fact, letting it sit for a bit allows the flavors to meld together nicely. Just give it a good stir before serving.

Can I use canned or frozen peaches instead of fresh?

Fresh peaches are ideal for this recipe because they provide the best texture and flavor. However, if fresh peaches are out of season, you can use canned or frozen peaches. Just make sure to drain and pat them dry before dicing.

I can’t keep this Peach Salsa around…in a good way. It’s so delicious and my family loves scooping it up with chips for a snack or eating it with chicken or fish for dinner. Make it once and you’ll always want to have a double batch on hand, too.
