Sweet and tangy peaches and raspberries combined with the peppery taste of fresh basil makes for a great non-traditional salsa!
Am I the ONLY one running around here in a state of panic, stuffing my face with as much summer fruit as absolutely possible? Seriously, in the last week, I’ve bought figs, blueberries, nectarines, strawberries, peaches, AND raspberries! I’ve been popping them into meals left and right…because ya know that’s a bit more respectable than just standing in front of the fridge with fruit juice running down my chin.
With all my fruit-filled eats, I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with different fruit combinations. I have to say, there’s just something about pairing blueberries with watermelon, berries with berries, bananas with figs, or my latest obsession,
raspberries with peaches…
I’ll be honest though, when I first starting making this peach and raspberry “salsa”, I actually planned on going a whole other direction, but SOMEBODY forgot to buy cilantro and well, you just CAN’T have salsa without cilantro. Or can you?
You can if you serve it with tortilla chips!
Or in this case, a P28 flatbread cut into triangles and toasted up under the broiler 😀

colorful and sparkly things Pic Monkey and photo editing. 😉
What are two of your favorite fruits to combine?
Anyone else thinking of the Crayola crayons right now or do I just have ADD? Wait, don’t answer that! Answer this: What was your favorite crayon color?
My favorite was always Robin’s Egg Blue!
Seriously digging bananas and figs right now (with pistachio butter!). That salsa looks awesome. Love me some sweetness with basil. Perfect combo!
That Flatbread looks o yummy and pretty – and sparkly!! Everything is better with sparkles, right??
I love blueberries and figs together….oh, or whote nectarines with pomegranate! So good!
I love both fruits, but I don’t think I’ve put them together before. Winner! Oh, and my fav crayon color is “macaroni and cheese.”
I love peaches and raspberries but I never think to combine them…especially in a salsa, so smart! I think my favourite fruit combo has to be banana and blueberries. Just can’t go wrong.
Hahaha i love the sparkles!! now that is some good salsa! and i too LOVE cilantro in salsa, but it sounds like this one doesnt even need it! looks delicious!! personally i have been all about blueberries lately.
Um yeah. I need that flatbread, like, yesterday.
Just pinned both of these! Raspberry and peach together… I die. Can’t wait to make both 🙂
Aww, yay!! Thank you so much! I’d LOVE to hear what you think whenever you make them! 🙂
i’m glad you didn’t add cilantro.. you would have ruined it 😉 this looks reallllly good. I need to try that flatbread!
Ahh these recipes look AMAZING! I’m going to have to try them asap! Raspberries have managed to gain a special place in my heart as of recently and I’ve been craving peaches!
That flatbread looks SO good!! I have got to track those down!
Pretty pretty!! I missed most of fruit season this year and I’m only just now realizing it and just now getting very sad…
Omg, I’m right there with you girlie, I just had my FIRST nectarine yesterday! What the hell is wrong with us?!
Haha. Love the sparkles! That picture looks like it could have come out of a magazine. Are you still just using PicMonkey for all of your editing?
Yes ma’am!! I swear it sometimes takes me longer to edit the pictures than it does to actually type up my post! Lol
What a delicious combo! I love fruity salsas. And that flatbread pizza has me drooling!
Between your blog and instagram, your pictures never cease to make me ridiculously hungry! Those two recipes are absolute killers! Two fruit combination- definitely berries. I find others to be abit overpowering when paired with others!
Aww, thank you Arman! 😀
I’ve been stuffing my face with summer fruit too! One of the guys at the farmer’s market last weekend said it was probably the last one for blueberries and that made me SO sad!
I love banana and mango – together at last 😉
Both of these recipes sound oh so good!
I’ve been buying berries, nectarines and peaches like crazy, too! I am always bummed when all the Summer produce goes away! I love Fall, but there is only so much you can do with apples and pears (at least there is pumpkin!).
I love your recipes. I’ve been pairing raspberries and peaches lately, too! It’s a great combo. Aren’t the P28 wraps the best?? I’m hooked on them and the bread! In fact, I just placed another order for them today!
Amen, sistah! There’s just so much more variety during the summer! I just bought my FIRST nectarine the other day and could seriously smack myself for not remembering to pick them up sooner! And yes, I am so loving these wraps…believe it or not, I’ve had them in my freezer for about a year now…yet another thing I’ve been “hoarding”! 😉 Haha!

I LOVE that you added sparkles to these photos- so awesome! 🙂
When I saw Salsa, I expected savoury but I can definitely see me making this for an inner of a crumble. But I am definitely not a fan of mixing sweet and savoury like that. I am not at all adventurous with my flavours like that. But it really does look aesthetically pleasing. Can’t wait to try!
Wait. Are you saying its not respectable to eat fruit directly from the fridge, while the juice drips down your face. Well crap, there goes that.
Raspberries are my favorite fruit, and I adore summer time peaches so I was right there with you. In fact, I got more peaches in my share yesterday, I have some raspberry sauce in the fridge and a lovely bundle of goat cheese. I think you know what needs to happen. 😉
These look amazing and the sparkles are just icing on the cake. Hmm, Maybe you could make a peach raspberry cake next….I digress. It muss be my ADD. Razzmatazz.
Hmmm, see the only problem with that is it involves BAKING and a baker I am not…I got lucky with the sex cake (pun toooooootally intended)! 😉 But YOU can make a peach raspberry cake…oh better yet, a COBBLER and then mail it to me! Ohhh, now I want to put goat cheese on a biscuit and top it with raspberries and peaches! 😀
