Peach Salsa Rice Bowls – Your meatless Monday just got a whole lot tastier! You’ll want to put this fresh peach salsa on everything! Scroll down for VIDEO & RECIPE!
Peaches and I. We’re amigos. Compadres. Kindred spirits.
In a big, big way.
In every way, in fact, other than fuzzy peach skin. While it’s nice to touch with my fingers, it is not so nice for my mouth. I get twitchy just thinking about it. Yeesh.
Have you ever eaten peach salsa? It’s a revelation. Bright, fresh, sweet, tangy peaches turn into INCREDIBLE salsa with just a few ingredients. And once it’s made, you’ll want to put that peach salsa on everything. My fave? Rice bowls!
This peach salsa has become a favorite and a tradition. When the peaches are at their peak, we dice them up and stir in our favorite salsa add-ins to create a fresh, flavorful salsa I can eat by the spoonful. To turn it into a meal, we usually make these peach salsa rice bowls with black beans and rice–coconut rice, cilantro lime rice, or magic green rice–and dive in!
Notes on the Recipe
All about that base. You can easily swap out the rice I use for the base here for brown rice or quinoa. I love playing with different white rice combinations–coconut rice is amazing, or our stand-by magic green rice, or cilantro-lime rice are all delicious.
Paleo? This salsa is also INCREDIBLE on fish or chicken. I love this honey-lime marinade.
How long will it keep? The lime juice helps prolong the life, but you’ll want to eat it within about 2-3 days, tops. Peaches are just so delicate they don’t last much longer. If you use mango instead, you can get away with 4-5 days.
Not into peaches? This also works beautifully with mango! I love yellow mangos (sometimes called Atulfo or champagne mangos).
Change it Up! If you want, you can try adding chili powder, cumin, or a pinch of chipotle chili powder to the salsa. It’s fun to play with the flavor!
