Peach Salsa

Cuisinart original

The sweetness of this salsa makes it surprisingly versatile. While it can be served with tortilla chips, it also works well on a piece of grilled fish or crab cakes. We also love how it works on our Ricotta Bruschetta.


Makes about 1½ cups


¼      large red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut
         into ½-inch pieces
1      small garlic clove, peeled
1      small jalapeño, halved and seeded, cut into
         ½-inch pieces
½     small red onion, cut into ½-inch pieces
2      peaches, peeled and pitted, cut into
        ½-inch pieces
1½  tablespoons fresh cilantro or parsley
2     teaspoons fresh lime juice
1½ teaspoons rice (or raspberry or white
       balsamic) vinegar
½   teaspoon honey
      pinch kosher salt
