Sweet Summer Peach Salsa

peach salsaLately 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.

Enjoy this sweet summer peach salsa…great on a piece of chicken or fish!
