With the summer peach season in high gear we've been enjoying this beautiful fruit in several ways this week, including last evening when we had this great fruit salsa on some delicious grilled chicken quesadillas. We also use this salsa on taco salads, with grilled salmon or just with corn tortilla chips as a healthy snack.
Makes about 3 cups
4 large ripe peaches, peeled and diced small
