I love this recipe because of the depth of flavors and burst of colors. It's quick and easy to make. It's best when peaches are in season, but you could try strawberries or pineapple instead. —Holly Bauer, West Bend, Wisconsin

"I made the peach salsa with the Southwest Flank Steak and Smoky Corn Salsa on page 58 and it was amazing. My picky 15 year old had seconds! I wonder (if anyone from HC is reading....) what the nutritional value is for the peach salsa alone??"
