Peach and Nectarine Salsa PEACH AND NECTARINE SALSA

I know summer has arrived when I try to find things to eat with fresh fruit salsa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This salsa screams “It’s summer!” loud and clear. Our family enjoys it in egg burritos or atop grilled or broiled chicken breasts, salmon fillets, salmon burgers, or fish.--Marcy

makes 3 cups

1 large or 2 medium peaches with give, peeled, halved, pitted, and diced
2 nectarines, pitted and diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 red onion, diced (yellow or green onions may be substituted)
1 small-medium jalapeno chile, seeded and finely diced
Juice of 1 lime (1 to 2 tablespoons)
Chili powder, for seasoning
Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a bowl, combine the peach(es), nectarines, cilantro, bell pepper, onion, and chile. Drizzle with the lime juice and season lightly with the chili powder, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately with your favorite dish.

VARIATION: To turn this salsa into a salad, add diced avocado, cucumber, jicama, mango, and/or papaya and serve on a bed of lettuce.

COOK'S NOTE: Be careful when working with jalapeno chiles, as they contain compounds that can burn your skin. You may want to wear rubber gloves (or slip plastic bags over your hands) when working with the cut chiles to avoid burning your fingers. Also make sure you do not touch your eyes, nose, or other sensitive areas when handling chiles. (I once accidentally put in my contact lenses with jalapeNo-laced fingers and my eyes burned for hours!)
