Grilled Peach Salsa

Grilled Peach Salsa | Gluten-free | Queen of Quinoa

When I was a little girl I hated salsa. I didn't like anything spicy. The acidity of salsa threw me off. The slimy tomatoes, crunchy onions and cilantro gave me the shivers. Especially the cilantro.

Oh how I hated cilantro {that and dill, ick}. With a passion. It was like my body rejected it, even the smell. I wouldn't go near the herb with a 10 foot pole.

But now I'm practically a grown up. I've come to appreciate salsa for what it is. A fabulous dip that can be used in all kinds of cuisines, in hundreds {if not thousands} of different ways, and almost always uses a combination of fresh herbs and produce.

Usually I stick with the same ol' Pico de Gallo that I've been whipping up for years. Only a few simple ingredients, tossed in the food processor, pulsed quickly, and bam you've got salsa.

But I've started spreading my wings and exploring new territory. I'm heading into uncharted waters and totally loving life.

Especially when life involves peaches.

Char grilled peaches.

Have you tried them? They're to die for. Drool worthy. Out-of-this-world good.

You already know how much I love peaches, but my eyes have been opened to a whole new world. of this fab little fruit When I first tasted one of these babies, my taste buds were in heaven.

The softness of the peaches is magical. They're like little juicy pillows that are full of sweetness and charm. They melt in your mouth. But these peaches are different. They're grilled. They're smokey and luscious and addicting, all at the same time.

Heavenly.
