Salsa is such a versatile food. You can use it to as a dip, or to add extra flavor to a dish. It can be sweet, savory, mild, or spicy. This recipe is just a little bit of everything. Ripe peaches bring juicy sweetness, and jalapeños, red pepper flakes, and Tabasco kick the heat up a few notches. It’s amazing by itself, but it also enhances the flavors of other foods, like these grilled pork chops. Veggies and herbs are the only other ingredients in this recipe, so each serving comes out to a low 35 calories. It’s easy to make and enjoy this salsa, but the hard part is choosing how you’ll use it first.
