Grilled Peach Salsa Recipe


  • 2 peaches, halved, pitted
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp mint, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • kosher salt, to taste


Preheat your grill for high heat (500ºF) direct grilling. Grill the cut sides of the peaches and red onion, just until nicely charred. Do not cook until soft. You want peaches to still have some structure.

Dice the peaches into bite sized pieces. Mince the onion. Combine with the remaining ingredients and toss to mix evenly. Taste and adjust seasoning, as desired.
