Health benefits of peaches
It’s a heart healthy fruit that helps improve digestion because it contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Along with boosting immunity and decreasing inflammation this fruit promotes healthy eyes and improved skin.
How to buy the right peaches
I prefer peaches with yellow flesh from inside because of it nice and flavorful taste. It is important to buy the right peaches for this recipe so make sure its ripe but not mushy. Its skin should be free of any bruises and if you try to squeeze it you might feel the softness but should not dig in.

- Make sure to crush or pulse peaches and not blend it. It is important to have crunchy bites.
- Before squeezing in lemon roughly toss all the ingredients with a spatula so that the flavors blend really well.

Basically, it is a fruit dip with sweet, salty, tangy and spicy taste to it which resembles to the original salsa in many ways.
I did not try freezing it because its so easy to make and mostly I never have leftovers to freeze. I would recommend serving it fresh for the best taste experience.
