Celebrate summer produce with this fresh Peach Avocado Salsa. It's crunchy, naturally sweet, and has a smooth, yet bright finish. For extra summer flavor, pick up your veggies at the local farmers market. From there, this recipe will be ready in under 10 minutes!
I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for new ways to dress my proteins and spice up my appetizers. Extra points if the dressings, sauces, marinades, or dips are healthy, fresh, and full of flavor.
Yesterday's trip to our local farmers market reminded me again of the amazing bounty we have this time of year. Fresh sweet corn and peaches; tender green beans and dark leafy greens; gorgeous herbs and bright peppers. I couldn't help but not to think of how to use these beautiful ingredients to make a new favorite salsa or topping.
And a salsa it was going to be. A fruit salsa, that is. Clearly, I have a thing for peach crisps and cobblers, but what if I found a way to work this treasured fruit into our appetizers or main dishes, too?
Whether you serve this salsa as a dip with tortilla or pita chips or spoon it over freshly grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon, or a buddha bowl, this recipe brings all the flavors of summer to your favorite recipes.
And it does it in minimal time and fuss, too. Just chop up your ingredients, toss them all together, and fresh summer salsa is served. That's right: this recipe is perfect for last minute dinner get togethers, those summer potlucks that sneak up on us, and as a warm afternoon treat just because.
Summer's only here so much longer. Let's make the most of it with delicious seasonal treats like these.

If you're looking for a versatile summer dip or condiment, look no further than this fresh fruit salsa recipe!
Peach salsa recipe ingredients:
- Sweet corn - fresh corn or frozen corn (defrosted) both work
- Red onion - preferably fresh, but bottled also works
- Lime juice
- Fruit - many other types of fruit can substitute for the peaches; diced mango, strawberries, apricot, and plums can work in place of the peaches.
- Onions - diced red onions are best but half the amount of diced vidalia or sweet yellow onion can substitute for the red onions
How to make fresh peach salsa:
- Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
- Gently stir or toss the salsa until combined.
- Serve immediately or chill covered for 3-4 hours, or until serving!
- Additional stir-ins: make this salsa your own by stirring in a minced jalapeno or half of a diced red pepper. You can also use half peaches and half apricots, plums, strawberries, or mangos.
- Chill the salsa 2-4 hours to let the flavors marinate. Much longer and the peaches and avocados can soften and the avocados can brown.
- Peeling the peaches - only peel the peaches if you want to. Leaving them on adds extra color and nutrition without compromising taste, but they can be peeled if that's your preference.
