This recipe is so easy to throw together, and the taste is amazing! The expression on my husband's face when I gave him a sample was priceless! It's flavorful, with a nice thick and chunky consistency. I added a chopped mango as I had a very ripe one to use up, otherwise followed as written.

This was a great recipe that yielded some awesome salsa! I probably screwed myself out of 2 cups of the finished product by using roma tomatoes, so if you use them for this recipe because they're cheaper at the grocery, better make it 15-16 tomatoes, and not just 12. Next time I make this (YES, there will be a next time!), I'm going to use both peach AND mango. So glad I made this!
