Peach Salsa Fresca

So I am going to a recipe group tonight and the theme is finger foods, but I really wanted to do something you utilize the abundance of produce growing in my own backyard. What I came up with is this fresh and flavorful peach salsa fresca. Simple and delicioso!

2 cups diced fresh tomatoes
1 yellow bell pepper finely diced
2 c peaches peeled and diced
5-6 scallions chopped (white parts only)
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
1/2 bunch of cilantro chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped

Chop all above ingredients and toss in a bowl. Make sure you seed the tomatoes as much as possible, otherwise your end result will be too soupy. Also, I like to use Roma tomatoes because they are meatier.

Stir in

1 T garlic salt
1 T onion powder
1 T Mrs. Dash seasoning
pepper to taste
Juice from one lime
1 T honey

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate or serve immediately. If you like a spicier version throw in some seeds from the jalapeno or add a dash of cayenne to taste.
