This sweet but zippy salsa is a great way to use summer fruits and vegetables. Try it on pork or chicken at your next cookout.

This is a wonderful fruit salsa. I noticed another reviewer said the person submitting this recipe didn't know what salsa was and what it was supposed to taste like. I think the reviewer doesn't know what you're supposed to do with FRUIT salsas. This is wonderful on pork chops and chicken from the grill. This is NOT salsa to dip your chips in! Wonderful flavor great way to use up the abundance of wonderful fresh local peaches on my kitchen counter. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

I think this recipe is more of a chutney than a salsa. After I made this (I did cut it into fourths) I added some drained pureed tomatoes with green chilles cilantro and cumin. It made it more salsa like to me. Read More

I made this recipe in 2004 and canned it. I cut the sugar and added hot peppers. We really like it and I will make it again this year. We like it with chips. Read More

I thought this was a great dish! The only thing I changed was I didn't add the green bell pepper because I'm not too crazy about that taste. I could have used more peaches for more peach flavor and next time I'll be adding some jalapenos or some hot banana peppers for a little zip. I served this over grilled chicken and rice. Read More

My mom and I make this salsa occasionally and I was surprised to find the same recipe on this site. We add jalepenos for kick (no seeds) and a few less pears. I love sweet salsa not hot or spicy so this recipe is great! She says fresh peaches/pears are best but we've also used canned and I can't tell the difference. Read More

This is exactly what I was looking for - however I will omit the pears (just don't want them) and change the green pepper for red (personal taste). I plan to can it since I have an abundance of peaches to use..and I plan to eat most of this with tortilla chips! I noticed there are no customized versions of this! Great job Auntylene! Read More
