nectarine salsa

it's about to be july. seriously? what is going on.

don't get me wrong, i'm happy about it. july is great. july is light and bouncy.

july is sparkly, with bubbly drinks and twinkly lights.

july is delicious and juicy. because of the fruit. oh my gatos! this fruit. is. absurd.

..and if you are hoarding as much fruit as i am, you might also find yourself scrambling to eat it up before it goes bad because this absurd fruit is ripening at lightning speed.

fruit salsa is a solution. an easy, addictive solution.

and it's one of the simplest insta-rewarding things you can whip up in your kitchen. true, it's true!

whatever fruit, i used nectarines.
a little red onion, a little jalapeno, a couple limes, cilantro.
done. that's it.
eat some. go about your day. then eat some more later.

peaches, nectarines, mango, whatever. this salsa doesn't care. it will always be good, dammit.

delightful on chips of both the tortilla and pita varietal.
i would gladly spoon some on a fish taco, a quesadilla, and perhaps even a bowl of black bean soup.

hop to it.

oh, and i hope you're having a lovely weekend you peachy bunnies!

Nectarine Salsa
loose measurements!

3-4 ripe nectarines or peaches (you can peel them or not), chopped
a couple handfuls of chopped red onion (maybe 1/4 cup)
1 jalapeno, chopped (stem and seeds removed)
juice of 2 limes
few handfuls of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste

throw everything into the bowl of a food processor. pulse a couple times, just to get everything combined, but not too much that it gets too pureed. (if you don't have a food processor you really can just chop everything up a little finer and just mix it up in a bowl). transfer to a bowl and let it sit in the refrigerator for a little to let the flavors mingle.
