Food For Fitness: Fresh & Fruity Summer Salsas

Perfect for utilizing Summer’s colorful produce, these quick and easy salsas are excellent served hot or cold. Try these sweet and spicy dishes as a complement to grilled chicken, broiled wild salmon or pulled pork tacos. You can even enjoy them as a snack by mixing them with creme fraiche and serving with cold mashed sweet potatoes or gluten-free crackers. For maximum flavor and nutritional value, select fresh, local fruits that are ripe and somewhat firm so they’ll hold their shape after cutting. SWEET PEACH SALSA Ingredients (Yields 3 Cups)
