Peach Salsa with Balsamic Vinegar

The assembled ingredients...

Peachapalooza post number two!  Peach Salsa with Balsamic Vinegar. Since I had a plethora of peaches, I thought I’d whip some up into a fresh, light, tangy salsa; since I adored the flavor of the balsamic vinegar in the freezer jam I made, I decided to use that same acid in the salsa. 

I made this to go on the top of a salmon dish I was working on…the salmon being coated in a brown sugar topping.  Let’s just say, the salmon dish needs some more work.  But the salsa was delightful!  I could imagine this on just about anything, from a chip dip to chicken, pork or fish.

It’s simple…it’s fresh…it’s peaches!  What more is there to say?

This is how I served it...atop brown sugar baked salmon, with buttered rice with toasted pine nuts and chives...

Like I said, the salmon dish needs some tweaking…but it was still good.  And let me just tell you now…that rice?  *ded*  Beyond good!
