Aromatic peach salsa is a wonderful condiment that goes so well with so many different recipes. Serve it with fried prawns, steak or as a side dish for your Mexican dinner party. It’s extremely easy to make and delivers loads of flavour.
I love adding a touch of fruity flavour to my lunch or dinner recipes. It keeps my taste buds excited and makes the same old recipes feel different and unique.
It’s not the easiest task to incorporate sweet and juicy fruits into your savoury recipes, because they can easily become overpowering. But by balancing fruity flavours with the right amount of acid and salt – you can really make magic.
When I was a kid, I remember my mum used to add tinned peaches or pineapples to chicken stews. When I told my friends, they looked at me like I’d just told them I liked eating pizza with pineapples – controversial and very unusual! However, my mum is the ultimate master of flavours – she managed to combine these ingredients in perfect harmony.
So it’s no surprise my amazing mum is where this fascination with sweet and savoury came from.
If you’d like to start your fruit-flavour discovery journey, this peach salsa is the perfect starting point. It’s easy to make, always works, and goes with loads of different recipes.
