Gingered Peach and Avocado Salsa
There are a few things in Colorado that signify to me that the summer harvest is in full swing: Olathe sweet corn, plums on my front trees, and juicy Palisade peaches. I was lucky enough to be gifted a full box of peaches this week by a friend, so I’ve been using them in just about every way I can, including just eating them for breakfast and snacks. This easy salsa recipe is delicious on seared tuna, pork tenderloin, or with brie cheese on crackers.Be sure to use really sweet peaches – or substitute ripe mangos in place – and avocados that are just barely soft to the touch so they don’t disintegrate into the salsa. If you’re not a fan of ginger, leave it out, or if you are a fan, feel free to amp up the taste with some extra fresh ginger. Happy harvesting!
