Peach Salsa is an easy, flavorful, quick appetizer to whip up quickly. And if you’re a fan of vibrant flavors and fresh ingredients, I know you’ll love this Mexican-inspired salsa or dip.

We are big peach fans. Let me qualify; my husband is a huge fan, having spent his early childhood years next to a peach orchard in Northern California with many “grandmothers” and “aunts” fixing the little guy treats every day.

When we married, I immediately brushed up on peach recipes! And now love peach treats like Skillet Peach Crisp and peach cobblers, whether they are made in a skillet or the crockpot.

Spiced Peach Galette will always have a seat at our summer table, and you will often find Peach Overnight Oats with Greek Yogurt in the refrigerator for morning snacks and meals or Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam with scones later in the day.

But let’s talk about peaches in a different way… as a savory, slightly sweet dip, much like traditional tomato salsa, that is so yummy; it’s almost irresistible. I’m memorizing this recipe to make all season!

What to Love About Peach Salsa

  • Less acidic than tomato salsa
  • Sweet and a tad spicy (although you can control how much spice you add)
  • Delicious, easy, and perfect for healthy snacking or summer entertaining

What to Serve with Peach Salsa

Similar to the popular Trader Joe’s Peach Salsa, this recipe is easy to make at home and serve in many ways and with many different accompaniments. Here are a few ideas:

  • As an appetizer with chips
  • On a cheese board or charcuterie board
  • Topping for chicken, fish, or pork

Ingredients for Peach Salsa

The exact ingredient measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Here is a list of what you’ll need and ingredient notes too.

  • Cherry tomatoes halved or quartered so they are roughly the same size as the other ingredients.
  • Bell pepper seeded and diced.
  • Jalapenos or other peppers you enjoy, like serrano, seeded and finely diced.
  • Medium onion diced, I prefer a red onion, but a yellow or sweet onion is delicious too.
  • Fresh peaches, diced: You can peel the peaches or leave it on for added color.
  • Sauce: fresh chopped cilantro, minced garlic, lime juice, honey, ground cumin, salt and pepper, and an optional pinch of cayenne for additional flavor and heat.

How To Make Fresh Peach Salsa

1. Half or quarter cherry tomatoes and chop peaches with a large dice (makes them stand out in the dish when they are larger) and transfer to a large bowl. I’m using a vegetable chopper to make this salsa extra quick!

2. Finely chop onion, seeded bell pepper, and jalapeños and transfer to your bowl. Use a vegetable chopper (affiliate link) if you have one handy.

Peach Salsa Questions & Tips

Can I use canned peaches instead of fresh peaches?

While fresh peaches are recommended for the best flavor and texture, you can use canned peaches as a substitute if fresh ones are not available. Make sure to drain the canned peaches before using them in the salsa.

Is peach salsa spicy?

The level of spiciness in peach salsa can be adjusted according to your preference. If you want a milder salsa, remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapenos before adding them. If you prefer more heat, include the seeds and membranes or add extra jalapenos.

How long can I store peach salsa?

Peach salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 to 5 days. It is best consumed within this time frame to maintain its freshness and flavor.

What are some serving suggestions for peach salsa?

Peach salsa is a versatile condiment that can be served in various ways. It pairs well with tortilla chips, tacos, grilled chicken or fish, quesadillas, and even as a topping for salads or sandwiches. It adds a burst of flavor and a touch of sweetness to your favorite dishes.

Can I freeze peach salsa?

It is not recommended to freeze peach salsa as the texture of the peaches may become mushy and lose their freshness. It is best enjoyed when prepared fresh.
