Peach Salsa

On a bit of a peach kick here! Hard not to be with perfectly ripe peaches in every market. This is the perfect summer salsa made with seasonal fruits and vegetables; all you need is a food processor to create the right consistency. Its colorful presentation and delicate balance of sweet, spicy, and fresh flavor makes this salsa very well received. I am particularly fond of the sweetness from the peaches that helps balance out the acidity from the tomatoes and lime. This can be served as a dip with chips or alongside your favorite grilled chicken or fish as your new light and refreshing summer condiment. Make it soon while all of your ingredients are in season!

1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
juice of 1 ½ limes

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and pulse 10-15 times, or until desired consistency is reached. Add salt, pepper or lime to taste.
