This recipe for peach salsa is the ultimate summer condiment. Juicy ripe peaches, herbs, and a bit of jalapeno creates a sweet and spicy salsa that’s perfect with chips, on fish or chicken, or even on a sandwich!
I’m a huge fan of fruit salsa, whether it’s a dessert style salsa or a sweet and savory tropical pineapple salsa. This peach salsa is the best way to showcase summer fruit!
When the stores are loaded with summer produce like melon, berries and peaches, I buy as much as possible and try to make the most of it! This peach salsa is a fun way to add fresh fruit to the dinner table. You can serve it up in so many different ways and it’s always a big hit.
How do you choose fresh peaches?
For this recipe, you’ll want to choose peaches that are on the firmer side so that they don’t get mushy in the salsa. Look for peaches that smell fragrant and have a slight give to them when you gently squeeze them. You can use yellow or white peaches for your salsa, whichever one you prefer!
How do you make peach salsa?
I used the ingredients I had on hand to create this easy yet delicious peach salsa. The recipe is simply ripe peaches, a little red onion and jalapeno, lime juice and cilantro. I love how versatile this peach salsa is – serve it as a dip with chips, on grilled chicken or fish, or even in a salad. I recently made a grilled chicken salad and topped it with this salsa, black beans and avocado for an amazing meal.
Tips for peach salsa
- Be sure to cut your peaches into a fine dice so that they can easily be scooped up on a chip.
- This salsa is on the mild side as the seeds and ribs are removed from the jalapeno. If you prefer a spicy salsa, you can leave some of the ribs and seeds in the pepper.
- You can add other fruit to this salsa such as mango, strawberries or pineapple.
I’m declaring this peach salsa the ultimate summer condiment – it’s quick, fresh, simple to make and packs tons of flavor. Enjoy it as an appetizer or as part of your main meal, and watch the rave reviews come in!

I made this for our fish tacos. Came out perfect!
Can you show how to modify this (and other recipes) for those of us that find cilantro tastes like soap?
What is a good replacement for cilantro?
I would use half the amount of green onions!
Can I can this recipe?
I’m not sure if it would work since this is an uncooked salsa!
How long will the salsa last in the refrigerator?
It’s best when eaten within 2 days!
My first time making peach salsa and boy was it good! I served it with broiled salmon and it was delicious!
Hello, this looks delicious and I am definitely going to make some. I was wondering if it can be frozen since I have a couple pounds of peaches and would love to make a large batch a head of time for our camp out family reunion?
You can freeze it, but it will be more watery when it thaws. Hope this helps!
Just mixed up a double recipe of your peach salsa using over ripe peaches ~they’re sweeter~ using a shallot because I had it~ after finely chopping I let it set in cold water to get rid of the harsh taste~and I added Fruit Fresh to prevent browning. Now I have to wait to let the flavors meld!! Yours is the first peach salsa I’ve made that I didn’t trash immediately. Thanks from my tastebuds and tummy!! ~ Judy
Refreshing and yummy to pair with almost any meat!
Beautiful! And it’s so versatile with chicken and fish. I’d love it on pork. Can’t wait to try it. And I have to pick up the magazine, too!
Should also be great with ham.
So pretty! Can’t wait for fresh peaches here, so I can make this. It’s summer in a bowl 🙂
To me, there’s nothing that screams “summer” like the taste of peaches and this beautiful salsa looks like the perfect way to celebrate the season!
Beautiful pictures of peaches! I’m inspired now to try something new also!
I love peach salsa with pork and just about anything else! This is a beautiful bowl Sara – I love my Cooking Light magazine!
Beautiful looking salsa! That salsa would be great on grilled chicken! Great idea to get inspiration from Cooking Light. I’m not generally into food magazines, but I like Cooking Light.
Peaches are so awesome. They’re perfect for salsa, and I love making BBQ sauce with them as well. Nice and sweet, but not overly so.
