Peach Salsa

Cuisinart original


Peach salsa is excellent served over grilled fish, chicken or even pork tenderloin. It can also be served like traditional tomato salsa with tortilla chips. We love it paired with our Crab Cakes on page 22.

1.  Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl of the Food Processor Attachment. Fit onto blender base.

2.  Put the red pepper into the work bowl and pulse on High to roughly chop, about 2 pulses. Reserve in a separate mixing bowl.

3.  Put the garlic, jalapeño and onion in the work bowl. Pulse on High, 2 to 3 times, to chop. Remove and reserve in the same bowl as the red pepper.

4.  Add the peaches and cilantro or parsley to the work bowl and pulse on High, 2 to 3 times, until peaches are roughly chopped. Transfer peaches and cilantro or parsley to the bowl with the other chopped vegetables. Stir in the lime juice, vinegar, honey and salt. Cover and let salsa rest to allow flavors to develop (a minimum of 30 minutes). Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
