I got these fresh peaches from the market, especially, keeping in my mind about this salsa recipe. As they had that good bright colour, I was expecting the peaches to have deep yellow colour even inside. But, to my disappointment, when I de-seeded them, they didn’t had that bright yellow colour.
On the good side, they had the right sweetness suitable for this recipe. Hence, I proceeded to make the salsa which came out as perfect as it should be.
Possible Alterations for the recipe, ‘Fresh Tomato & Peach Salsa’:
Using Juicy Tomatoes: If you wish to get that juicy texture of tomatoes, you might mash them gently with a potato masher. Only then add them into the mixing bowl.
To add more spice, to the salsa, you can even add 1 tablespoon of red chilli flakes to season.
Replacement for Fresh Plum tomatoes: They might be replaced with Fresh Cherry tomatoes, Fresh Vine Tomatoes.
For seasoning: This is not an authentic option, but try to add a ¼ spoon of Mexican spice mix (available in super markets).
How to use / serve ‘Fresh Peach Salsa’:
Salsa is generally served with tacos or tortilla chips or crisps as a dip. Same as shown in the pic below.
Its even great when used as a filling in tacos.
You can even opt this as part of any Mexican style meal / dinner.
Or else, I would love to have it just as a side, along with these nuggets :
- Chickpea Burger Patties (Air Fryer, Stove top)
- Red Kidney Beans Nuggets / Rajma Masala Vada (Air Fryer, Stove Top, Oven)
- Potato & Corn Cutlets / Tikki (Air-Fryer, Pan-Fry Method)
