A fruity salsa with room for seasonal variations. Load peach salsa onto lime marinated chicken for a sweet and spicy change of pace from traditional tomato based salsas.


  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
  • ½ small jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • 8 dried apricots (2 oz.)
  • 5 peaches, peeled and diced
  • 2 T Italian parsley, cilantro or basil, chopped
  • ½ lime, zested
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • pinch of cayenne and agave nectar (optional) to taste


  1. Combine first 8 ingredients and mix well. Squeeze peach peels and remaining juices over salsa before discarding.
  2. Optional: Add a pinch of cayenne and a little agave or liquid sweetener of choice.
  3. Garnish with thin slices of peaches, peppers and herbs.
  4. Substitute any fresh fruit in season! Try mango, pineapple, kiwis, apples or a combination of fruits.
  5. For best flavor, refrigerate a few hours or overnight. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.
