I have said numerous on this blog that I have a love affair with ripe peaches. The kind where the juice runs down your arm once you take a bite. The same goes for nectarines. I like to refer to these fruits as cousins. Their tastes are very similar. The main difference being that a peach has the fuzzy skin and the nectarine does not. While I do enjoy both, I personally give the edge to the nectarine because sometimes the peach fuzz bothers me.

I often feel the nectarine is a little overshadowed by the popularity of the peach – and that is just not fair! This sweet and sassy Nectarine Salsa is the perfect way to enjoy nectarines in a slightly sweet and savory way. Grab the chips and enjoy!

Sadly, this year’s peach and nectarine crop are lacking here on our farm. An early frost wiped out a lot of our crop. But I managed to grab a few to make this delicious salsa. It’s so stinkin’ easy too! Along with traditional salsa ingredients like jalapeno peppers, onions and cilantro, I added diced nectarines as a substitute for tomatoes. I also added some corn red pepper for extra crunch and to balance the heat from the jalapeno. It’s a one bowl wonder too! Score on that one. I like recipes with less prep dishes to wash.

This is one bountiful bowl full of summer loving. It’s the perfect way to enjoy all those fresh fruits and vegetables at your local farmers’ market. While I often equate this Nectarine Salsa with summer, you can make this any time of the year that nectarines are available. And yes, if you are not a nectarine fan, it is perfectly OK to substitute fresh peaches instead.
