This Peach Jalapeno Salsa is extremely flavorful with not only ripe peaches and spicy jalapeños, but also some crunchy apples, bell peppers, and red onion, along with creamy avocado and zesty lime to finish it out. Serve as an appetizer or a condiment. Whatever you choose, it’ll be delicious.
About this Salsa
As an ode to my time I’m Georgia, here we go with a celebratory peach recipe. If you haven’t yet tried my Peach Pound Cake or Healthy Peach Crisp, those recipes too, take full advantage of the magical fruit.
Fresh and juicy Georgia peaches mixed with spicy jalapeños plenty of additional fresh produce and topped with a healthy squeeze of lime juice. This Peach Jalapeno Salsa has so much flavor and is the perfect balance of sweet and heat you didn’t know you were going to love so much.
Serve as an appetizer or a condiment. Whatever you choose, it’ll be delicious. I chose to enjoy my Peach Jalapeno Salsa on hot dogs with some avocado and horseradish and wowza it was one of the most flavorful meals I’ve had in a while.
Other salsas you should try too: Cranberry Jalapeño Salsa, Fresh Mango Salsa, or Food Processor Salsa!
- Georgia Grown Peaches - Georgia Peaches are freshest from May to August. What makes them so special? The mild temperature and more consistent rainfall as compared to other peach growing states makes them extra juicy and flavorful.
- Jalapeño - We want some HEAT to contrast all of sweetness that the peaches and apples bring to this salsa. Might I dare say add a bit more than the recipe calls for for a real kick.
- Avocado - Smooth and creamy avocado rounds out the bright flavors in this salsa.
- Cilantro - Fresh herbs are where it’s at when it comes to homemade salsas. Adds to the brightness (in taste and color) of this recipe.
- Chile Lime Seasoning - A nice balance of smokiness and citrus to finish off your salsa.

How to Make This Recipe
1. First prepare the produce: Finely dice peaches, apple, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, avocado, and jalapeño. I like to use this alligator chopper. Chop cilantro, too. I like to use a pizza cutter for ease and speed.
2. Add all of the fruits and vegetables into a mixing bowl.
3. Toss together. Add the lime juice and seasoning and toss again.
4. Serve with chips as an appetizer or as a garnish to meat or fish!
Store in an airtight container for up to three days. I think it’s actually quite enjoyable the day after you make it because all of the flavors marinate together. Waiting much longer, however, the fruit becomes somewhat slimy.
The texture of your peaches will play a large role into the execution of your salsa. You don’t want tough, green peaches as these will be much too bitter. You also don’t want over ripe peaches that’ll turn to mush in your salsa. Choose a firm, red-ish peach with just a bit of give when you squeeze it in your palm.
You definitely don’t have to! I chose to keep the skin on mine, I thought it added a nice texture element. If skin ain’t your thing though, remove it. The necessary flavor is coming from the fruit itself.
each Salsa can be served in so many different ways. I enjoyed mine with a horseradish hot dog. The sweet and spicy went so well together. Peach Salsa would also go great on top of grilled fish or chicken or on tacos. Or enjoy classically with tortilla chips!
Use this recipe to create any fruit salsa of your choosing! Swap the peaches for strawberries, pineapple, pears (canned would work best), cherries, melon, or a combination! Pineapple Peach Salsa I think would be amazing.
