Lately I’ve been craving delicious fruit and a summer peach or nectarine can satisfy like no other. It’s fresh sweet taste reminds of summer days long ago filled with swimming pool fun, kick the can, lemonade, and lightning bugs. Its was a time of no worries and endless fun.
Today, I was strolling through the produce section at my local food market and was enticed by the lovely picturesque display of peaches and nectarines. I quickly made my way over and began to chat with a woman just as excited as I was to find the perfect nectarine. We began to talk about the beautiful color and sweet taste. She shared with me her nighttime ritual which included eating a piece of fresh fruit or frozen grapes. Her eyes widened as she smiled broadly at the thought of it. We laughed and giggled like kids…I thought to myself…no, we really haven’t changed…we still love our summertime, we just celebrate it a little differently these days.
Enjoy this sweet summer peach salsa…great on a piece of chicken or fish!
