Between the World Cup, my son’s birthday, and all the crazy- end-of-school-year STUFF, I have not been blogging with my usual attention. And I have missed you! But in the last few days of entertaining and spectating, this peach and nectarine salsa (done quickly at half-time) has been sparking up the fantastic grilled chicken my dad has been charring to perfection.
It is the result of buying a manager’s special of rejected peaches and nectarines on the cheap….You can substitute mango..in fact my mom thought it was mango! The important thing is the balance and excitement of sweet, citric, spicy and salty all at one go. Nancy, this one is for you…
Peach/Nectarine Spicy Salsa (for grilled chicken or shrimp)
1 Cup peeled and chopped peaches and nectarines
1 tsp red onion, chopped fine
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp balsamic vinegar
1 pinch hot red pepper flakes
1 pinch salt
Mix together in a bowl and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Serve with grilled chicken, shrimp or sturdy white fish.
