Chunky Peach & Cucumber Spicy Salsa ~

You have to love this time of the year with such a fresh variety of fruits and veggie goodness out there! I enjoyed my time last Saturday going to Apple Annie's in Wilcox, my first time (shocking to some I know) and I was quite impressed with their entire set up.  I've heard things ~ it was like going to an event, lots of fun.

I do have my own recipe for Peach Salsa using green chili that I've been happy with but thought I'd try another.  I found this recipe here from Southern Living the ingredients and direction are below, however and there always seems to be one :) for this recipe I used everything pictured below, minus some of the garlic and cilantro.  The jalapenos were below mild so I had to cut through everyone and the last two had the heat I was looking for.  I sliced those thin the others as original recipe said.

1 cup diced fresh peaches
1/2 cup diced cucumber
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded (opt) and diced
1 garlic clove, minced
3 TB chopped fresh cilantro
2 TB fresh lime juice

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Mix all in a small bowl.

The large cucumber I used half and removed a bit of the skin it was a bit tough, it really is all to taste and after I get it where I want I give it another folding together, and cover it.  I let it set the longer it does the more flavorful it becomes.  On the jalapenos it really up to you since the peaches were beautiful and sweet I didn't want the heat to over take them.  It was a prefect balance and I'll be serving it on grilled salmon tonight; as long as it isn't raining!  Enjoy

Oh as you've noticed the sliced peaches in the bowl aren't chunky I used those in pie.  I wanted you to see how pretty the peaches were.
