“del rio salsa recipe with fresh tomatoes authentic mexican fresh salsa recipe”

This homemade summertime treat is packed with two Southern favorites: refreshing peaches and nutty pecans. The sweet peaches add great texture, and the pecans pack in a crunchy bite to this ice cream recipe. This recipe is rich with heavy whipping cream and butter, and full-flavored with the bold and distinctive notes of vanilla bean paste. If you don’t have vanilla bean paste, you can substitute vanilla extract. However you have your vanilla, the true focus of this ice cream will be the peaches and nuts, and both of these are fantastic—fresh peaches and toasted pecans coming together in every single frosty, frozen bite. Savor this for summer.
But I really didn’t plan to talk about Myla today…..the story I wanted to share with you is about Nora! I’ll never forget one of my early experiences of being away from her. She was just starting on baby food and I left her home with Jorden while I took the older two shopping at Costco with my mom. In the middle of our hour long shopping trip, I got a phone call from a very panicked Jorden, telling me that Nora was gagging and throwing up the peaches he had been feeding her and wondering when I would be home.
Now let’s get to a funner topic- CINCO DE MAYO! Any holiday that lets me eat all the Mexican food is a great holiday in my book. haha! With how stressful this past week has been I am so ready to dig in to some comforting Mexican food tomorrow. One thing I know I’ll be making for it is this CHUNKY PEACH SALSA! It is so delicious and such a fun twist on ordinary salsa. Diced fresh peaches with tomatoes, jalapeños, onion and cilantro are all inside this amazingness.  You just can’t go wrong with this delicious salsa. I can’t wait to top it over our Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas and dip about 10,000 tortilla chips it. I’ll be counting down the hours until tomorrow. 😉 
Fresh tomatillo salsa is very tasty and this is the basic recipe, not really much else to do with it. I only give it 3 forks because there is nothing really earth-shattering about it. To the reviewers who recommend roasting the tomatillos, that is also a very good tomatillo salsa, but it is different. You can make salsa from tomatillos basically three ways: fresh, roasted or boiled. All have different flavor profiles, but if you roast them, that’s an entirely different dish for which epicurious has many recipes (nearly all of them the same).
“This is an uncooked tomato salsa (salsa fresca) that’s great to make while fresh tomatoes are in season. Stir pico de gallo into chopped/mashed avocadoes to make guacamole (see my Holy Moly Great Guacamole!), or serve as is with warm tortilla chips and Tex-Mex food (tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, burritos, chiles rellenos). From LHJ. ENJOY!”
You can really use any type of tomato in this recipe. I favor Romas or plum/paste tomatoes since they have more flesh and less juice. However, regular ol’ slicing tomatoes are just fine here too. You might need to seed the juicier tomatoes first so you don’t end up with buckets of tomato juice in your pico.
 Well, we’re kind of in that stage with Myla right now….and we have a wedding coming up this weekend. Not just any wedding, but my amazing friend Tanya’s wedding…..one of the last of my friends to get married. Needless to say, I’d love a little time away from her! Luckily, my parents will be there, ready to help. And with a little luck, any time I do have away from her will be mostly amazing (and only a little bit nerve racking!!)
You can also adjust any of the other ingredients if you wish. For example, if you like a spicier salsa, use more jalapeno. Or don’t omit all of the jalapeno seeds. We love cilantro, so we find 1/4 cup to be a good amount, but you can use more or less. Recipes like this are incredibly flexible so feel free to adapt to your own personal preferences.

To make the pineapple bowl, cut about 1/3 of the pineapple off, leaving the stem attached to the larger piece of the pineapple. Make a cut around the outer edge of the pineapple fruit and make cuts across the middle too.
I just tried this recipe and even though I did not have the yellow peppers, it was very tasty. I added more peaches and red onion to fill in the void. I served this salsa as a side to a grilled pork tenderloin.
Switch off between smashing and mincing until the garlic has released it’s yummy juices and has turned into a mass of garlic pulp. This takes a bit longer than regular mincing, but it’s oh-so worth it.
Scooped up on a chip or in a taco, peach salsa makes everything taste like summer. It’s also great served with chicken or fish, and since it comes together in a food processor, it really takes almost no time to make. —Shawna Laufer, Ft. Myers, Florida
