Healthy Grilled Peach Salsa takes full advantage of summertime’s bounty of fresh peaches, garden cucumbers, and ripe plum tomatoes!

When I was asked to bring an appetizer to a friend’s party recently, I decided I’d make a healthy and delicious fresh peach salsa.

The result is this amazingly fresh grilled fruit salsa recipe which can also pull double-duty as a fruit topping for cooked pork chops or even fish!

The ingredient list for making grilled peach salsa;

  • Fresh Peaches, stones removed and grilled (optional)
  • Plum Tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • Red Onion, roughly chopped
  • Jalapeno Pepper seeded and roughly chopped
  • Fresh Cucumber, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
  • Honey
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Olive Oil Spray

Why this peach salsa recipe works.

What I love about the taste of this salsa is the mix and complexity the sweetness of the grilled peaches provide along with the slight heat of the jalapeno, the bite of the red onion, and the mild background taste of cucumber, tomato, lime, and cilantro!

No one ingredient overpowers any of the others, and they all play very well together in the pool. Marco?!! 😉

So, you’d better grab a big bowl of chips because you’re going to be one happy snacker!!

Additional options for serving peach salsa;

How about stirring this grilled peach salsa in with some cooked pasta for a chilled pasta salad and a new and unexpected taste sensation?

Then, while you’re at it, why not add some cooked chicken to the peach pasta salad for a complete make-ahead meal that can be eaten on a hot summer night for dinner, or at a picnic or backyard BBQ.

And, if all that’s not enough for you…if you have any peach salsa leftover (depending on how many people you’re serving, and how hungry they are), this fresh fruit salsa will make an excellent topping for grilled fish or even seafood tacos.

Gosh, that taco idea sure sounds good… note to self!

Tonight I’m making some grilled tuna steaks and you can bet your bottom dollar this salsa will be happily spooned all over the top of that lovely tuna steak!!!

Fresh and fruity! Grilled Peach Salsa is always a hit!!

Do the peaches need to be grilled to make this recipe?

  • Nope!
  • Grilling the peaches will add another dimension of flavor to the salsa, but it’s not necessary to grill them if you’d prefer not to.

What does a grilled peach taste like?

  • Mellow and sweet.
  • Slightly charred and smoky.
  • Still peachy, but a touch sweeter, and caramelized.

Do I have to remove the peach skin when making this chunky peach salsa recipe?

  • I didn’t, but that was my personal preference.
  • You can choose to remove the peach skin if you prefer.

Will nectarines work in this recipe?

  • Yes!
  • Nectarines will work equally well in the recipe.

Can a grill pan be used instead of grilling the peaches on an outdoor grill?

  • Yes!
  • As you can see from my photos, I used a grill pan.
  • Remove the stones from the peaches and roughly chop each peach into large pieces.
  • Grill the peaches for 2-3 minutes per side over medium/high heat.
  • Turn the peaches and grill on the second side for an additional 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Cool completely.

The easy instructions for making peach salsa;

  • Grill the peaches on both sides, and allow to cool completely.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, and working in batches, pulse the prepared peaches, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, and cucumber for 5 or 6 pulses so that they still have a nice chunky texture (or to your desired consistency).
  • Add the peach salsa to a bowl and stir in the salt, pepper, cilantro, honey, and lime juice.
  • Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. 
  • Serve cold.
