I served this recipe at a Farmer's Market this summer and it was a huge hit!  However I noticed it makes more than the 2 cups of salsa per recipe.  In my estimation it's closer to 4 cups, so planning accordingly.  

I made this salsa with canned peaches to go with tacos. It was very tasty and added freshness to the meal. I did add ground chile to spice it up a bit. Will make again when all the produce is in season. Thanks for another simple salsa recipe!

I combined this salsa recipe (minus the tomatoes)  with the salsa recipes for Food Hero strawberry and kiwi salsa, for a salsa tasting at our farmer's market.  It turned out AMAZING!  I made two batches of the three salsas combined and gave out approximately 35 samples of the salsa with corn chips, during the 90 minutes I was at the market.  Even the children thought it was good.  One said it was "very refreshing."  One person said it would be good as a filling for fish tacos.  Each person who wanted to replicate the salsa at home was instructed to take a recipe for each and just mix everything together.  I used all fresh fruits.  I only used a quarter of a jalapeno pepper for each batch, and reduced the amount of onion, due to the fact I knew children would be tasting it.  You can control how spicey you want it just by eliminating or increasing the jalapeno pepper amount.   I did make one batch the day before and refrigerated it.  The second batch, I made at the market.  Both batches were excellent, but the second batch had a more vibrant color and a better texture.  I will definitely do this again!  

I love this recipe.  I made it a lot last summer with fresh peaches.  

So refreshing, great for summer!
