Doughnut peach salsa

Serves 4 15 min
Using fruit in salsa is a fantastic way of bringing sweetness into it; peaches work well because they have a subtle flavour, but you can get as exotic as you like: mango and pineapple also work well. This salsa is quick to make and great to eat straight away, but will improve if you let it sit for 30 minutes before serving. Try serving in smoky bean tacos or grilled fish and vegetables.

Cook's notes

This works best with slightly under-ripe, firm doughnut peaches. You could also try regular peaches or nectarines.

  • juice & zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 large tomato

Prep time: 15 min
  • Step 1

    Cut the peaches in half and destone them, then cut into small cubes. Place them in a bowl with the lime juice and zest.
  • Step 2

    Prepare the other ingredients: dice the cucumber, pepper and tomato. If using fresh corn, then char a cooked cob on a griddle pan to add colour; alternatively, use tinned. Thinly slice the chilli and chop the herbs. Combine the lot in the bowl with the peaches and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Step 3

    Allow to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or serve straight away.
