Refreshing Peach Salad

A few weeks ago I had to go to the Chelsea Market (which is a place you have to visit if you are ever in New York, and if you live in New York, you should visit it more often) , and outside the Fruit and Veg shop they were giving away samples of this recipe. It was so delicious I had to go home immediately and make it.

It’s sweet, spicy, salty, tart and savoury all at once – so unexpected and so refreshing – a perfect accompaniment to a grilled steak, chicken or fish….or eat it on its own. You don’t need alot per person, I think it’s almost better to treat it as a relish, so this recipe serves 4.

4 large or 6 small just-ripe peaches (you don’t want them too ripe otherwise they become mushy)
Juice of one lime
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
Half a jalapeno chili (optional, of course)
2 tablespoons (or more if you like) chopped cilantro/coriander

Cut peaches up into small pieces and place in a bowl

Mix the lime juice and sugar together in a separate bowl, then pour over the peaches.

Chop the chilli and cilantro, add to peaches and mix well
And voila, there it is.

How easy is that?! Your guests will love you, and you will love you too :-)
