"Salsa" is the Mexican word for sauce. We usually think of sauce as something to be cooked but the most popular Mexican "sauces" are uncooked, almost like a relish usually of tomato and onions. This Nectarine Salsa is a great change from the usual with its lime juice and the nectarines. Especially at the end of the summer when the fruit is at its sweetest, this is a great side dish especially for grill fests.
Servings: makes 2 1/2 cups
Duration: 40 Minutes
3 ripe nectarines, chopped
4 spring onions
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 teas finely chopped jalapeno peppers
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 teas chopped fresh mint (optional)
1-2 teas sugar (optional)
Combine all os the ingredients in a bowl. Adjust the flavor to how hot and or sweet you like it. Refrigerate covered for 30 minutes to let the flavors blend. Drain off excess liquid before serving.
I think I could make a whole meal of this! I have such a sweet tooth that this mix really does it for me. I have never tried it with peaches but you would need to peel the peaches or the skin with slough off and make fuzzy pieces in the salsa.
