Fresh peach salsa is sweet and savory and the best of both worlds! Vine ripe peaches combined with garden vegetables create a delicious salsa to enjoy with tortilla chips or on chicken or fish.
There is nothing like fresh salsa in the summertime when fruits and vegetables are in season! I am always looking for yummy salsa recipes to use up my harvest. I love this easy blender salsa, and this slow cooker salsa, but our favorite is this sweet mango salsa!
What Is Peach Salsa?
The freshness and flavor of peach salsa are so incredible, and you won’t be able to stop eating it. The best thing to happen to traditional salsa is the addition of peach. Fresh tomatoes, cilantro, onion, jalapeño, and red pepper compliment the peach perfectly, and it is love at first bite. Gobble it up with my fresh tortilla chips, and you will see that they are a match made in heaven!
I love the combination of sweet and savory. This fresh peach salsa recipe is one of my favorites, but you have to try some of my other favorite sweet and savory recipes. This baked chicken, this crockpot chicken, and this easy grilled chicken are all so delicious!

Peach salsa is best made ahead of time and refrigerated a few hours before serving. It allows the flavors to blend together. If you have leftovers, the salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.
