Cucumber Peach Salsa

Have you ever tried cucumbers and peaches together?  How about in a salsa?  This season we have enjoyed the bounty of cucumbers and peaches.  I wish I could say it was from the fruit of our land, but I can’t.  But we have sure enjoyed the fruit of others’ labor though.  We have made several cucumber based salads (thanks, Agi), we look forward to making some pickles, and all of my kids love to eat cukes as a snack (this secretly THRILLS me).  I guess it’s not really a secret, but I sure love to hear my kids choosing cucumbers to eat over other foods!

Cucumber Peach Salsa with Chips My friend, T, first introduced me to the thought of a cucumber based salsa when she brought one to a potluck in the spring.  It was so fresh tasting-I couldn’t stop eating it.  When we came into some cukes earlier this month, I knew I wanted to make a salsa using them but with a little twist from T’s original recipe.  I wanted to throw some peaches into the mix.

Cucumber Peach Salsa Variations to the Recipe: Feel free to add more peaches or cucumbers to the mix, based on what your preferences are.  Also, my friend’s version of the recipes uses tomatoes instead of the peaches.  I wanted to make a raw salsa, but in one of the versions I looked at they grilled the peaches.  If you are choosing to use a jalapeño pepper, you may want to wear gloves.  The first time I worked with a jalapeño I didn’t wear gloves, and my skin was burning from 10 am in the morning when I cut it until I went to sleep that night.  Not fun.
