What's Cooking Sunday: Peach Salsa

Since starting this blog feature, I've mostly shared my favorite main dishes. We often have interesting sides with our meals, and this is a favorite. It's super easy and fast, and goes very well with meats. Heck, it's good all by itself!

Peach salsa
prep time: 5 minutes
serves 4

2 (15 oz) cans peaches in juice, drained and chopped
2 green onions with tops, thinly slices
2 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 T lime juice
1/4 tsp Asian Five Spice Powder
2 tsp garlic chile paste
1/8 tsp white pepper

In medium bowl, combine the peaches, onion, cilantro and lime juice. Mix in the spice powder, chile paste, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

** Just a note: 2 full tsp of the garlic chile paste is enough to blow the roof off. While I like a nice fiery dish, this recipe had Marble Man on his knees and crying for his Momma. So, you might want to start with a little less and see how you like it - you can always add more.


In the summertime this is great with fresh peaches instead of canned.

this looks like the perfect thing to keep in the fridge at all times. maybe when i get the munchies, i can convince myself to reach for something like this, instead of my beloved dark belgian chocolate! i think that peaches are definitely much more hip friendly! :)

I was NOT crying for my Momma. I was crying for Argentina, the economy AND global warming at the very moment the spoon entered my mouth. Pure coincidence. Pure and simple. Nothing else. Nothing to see here. Keep walking...

Oh now this looks like something I need-sweet and fiery, just like me!

No worries Marble Man-I knew there had to be more to the story. ;)
