Peach Fennel Salsa

Raven Higheagle


Peaches are in abundance at the farmers market during the summer months. It just so happens that this salsa goes so well with a summer grill-out, especially grilled chicken salad. Fresh peaches are the best but, you can also use canned peaches. Make sure to drain all of the syrup. try this with grilled pork tenderloin too.
