Grilled Peach & Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Recipes, Tricia Phelps

Ripe peaches on the grill simply scream summer. The natural sugars in a peach are taken to an entirely new level when placed over the flame. Homemade salsas are a quick and easy way to bring together the best local produce the season has to offer. With gorgeous heirloom tomatoes, flavorful cucumbers and sweet juicy peaches we have the base of a delicious summer fruit salsa. Toss in some homegrown cilantro and a bit of locally produced Cilantro Jalapeño Sunflower Oil and you’ve got yourself a naturally refreshing sweetness paired with the perfect kick.

This recipe features local produce from VerSnyder’s Fruit, Providence Organic Farm & Shiloh’s Garden as well as locally produced oils from Grand Traverse Culinary Oils.

Chop peaches & heirloom tomatoes in larger chunks. Combine ingredients in a bowl, add fresh cilantro, the juice from one lime and salt to taste.
