Peach Salsa

One of my favorite aspects of working at the farmers’ market is conducting cooking demos. It’s a fun way to get people to stop by and get a real taste of the products. At my market, most of the people are regulars but we’re seeing new faces all the time. It’s a cozy market that’s a community hot spot. It’s also the location of the Brooklyn Artisan Market. Lucy, my fellow manager, and I decided it was time for some new additions to our uniforms and stopped by the hat stand.

“Hold some vegetables- it needs to look like we’re doing something.”

Anyway, I made up some refreshing peach salsa to highlight some of the things you can do with fruit. So many people rave about mango salsa- I mean, it’s good and all but why not get peaches when they’re in season and local? I whipped up this sweet and spicy salsa outside in 10 minutes. The more you let it sit, however, the more flavorful it will be!

It was so good I made some at home too!

Peach Salsa

  • 4 large peaches, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1-2 jalapenos, minced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • Juice from 1 lime, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Combine the diced peaches, onions, jalapenos and cilantro in a bowl.
  2. Squeeze the lime over the salsa and mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve with your favorite chips, crackers or on top of pretty much anything- it’s that good!

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
