I needed to use up a couple of very ripe peaches today and this is what I came up with. I served it with seared chicken breasts.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Fruit salsa is wonderful on chicken, fish, or all alone on a tortilla chip. This is a wonderful way to use ripe and juicy peaches. It's sweet with a slight bite from the green onions. Fresh bell peppers and a lot of cilantro make this salsa wonderful. A bit of tang from lemon juice balances out the sweetness of the peaches. Simply delicious!
