With three kids aged 5 and under, I am always looking for ways to fit a little “Me Time” into our crazy hectic schedule. I snag whatever time I can to just sit and relax, even if it’s only for 15 minutes! I was recently at Safeway where I picked up the latest issue of CookingLight magazine – the headline about 25 minute summer meals caught my eye, you know I’m all about the quick and easy meals! I was inspired by the magazine to create this peach salsa, a simple recipe that can be made in 10 minutes and is the perfect summer appetizer or condiment.
My parents took my girls on an outing a little while back and instead of rushing around cleaning and doing chores, I curled up on the couch for “Me Time” with CookingLight magazine. I love to get cooking inspiration from food magazines, and I ended up cutting out about a dozen recipes – so many great things to try! I was immediately inspired to make something summery for dinner that night and the bowl of peaches on my counter caught my eye.
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.
I’ve been working my way through the recipes I pulled out of CookingLight, and it’s so nice to have more easy dinner solutions full of fresh ingredients.
