I’ve been reading a lot lately about various fruit salsas served over grilled meats and fish. Since I had some peaches available and English cucumbers, I decided I would go ahead and see what kind of fruit salsa I could come up with for grilled chicken. We grill chicken a lot and a fruit salsa sounded like a good way to change it up a bit. That’s how I came up with my Peach Cucumber Salsa with Grilled Chicken, and we loved it!
The idea behind a fruit salsa is of course, a fruit blended with either other fruits and/or vegetables of one kind or another. Add to this a vinaigrette of sorts, and you should have the makings of a fruit salsa that can be used as a topping on a grilled meat, such as chicken, or a grilled fish. That is just what I did to come up with my Peach Cucumber Salsa with Grilled Chicken, and it was delicious!
1 peach diced
1/2 long English cucumber diced
2 tablespoons green onions sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon pure organic honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Grilled chicken breasts (or another meat or fish)
Take all the above ingredients, except for the grilled chicken, of course, and mix together. Let stand for a while, so the flavors can blend together. When your grilled chicken is done, plate it and spoon the Peach Cucumber Salsa over the top of the chicken. Serve with side dishes of your choice. I chose my Grilled Zucchini.
My Peach Cucumber Salsa with Grilled Chicken is both delicious and healthy! This meal makes a great summer through fall meal, but can be served any time of the year. The rich flavors of the fruit with the vegetables make this topping for grilled meats or fish not only healthy, but delicious and refreshing as well. Serve with a side vegetable, like my Grilled Zucchini, and a glass of white wine. Give this Peach Cucumber Salsa a try as a topping for grilled chicken or whatever other meat or fish you choose, and enjoy!
