These sweet, grilled peaches are mixed with tomatoes and garlic to give a refreshing topping that you can use on top of grilled chicken, or as a dip for game day or at summer parties.

Grilling the peaches helps the natural sugars in the fruit to caramelize, giving you an extra delicious sweet edge to the salsa.

What I really like about this grilled peach salsa recipe is that it works as a topping just as well as it does a dip. It can sit beautifully on top of grilled chicken breasts, or on the side of pork tenderloin.

If it can be matched with something sweet, then go for it.

Quick tips

Try to pick peaches that are still on the firm side of ripe. I find overripe peaches deteriorate a bit quicker as your grill them, whereas firmer ones tend to hold up to the grill heat a bit better.

I’ve seen some examples of this recipe include ingredients like chili or diced jalapeño. For the purpose of this recipe I’ve left those out but if you’re like me and enjoy a kick of spice to your dips and toppings, then go for it! Usually just one chili or jalapeño pepper deseeded and diced up should be enough.

Make sure you make this up by grilling indirectly. While we do want grill marks on these peaches, we don’t want to obliterate them with high heat. Find out more about indirect grilling and 2-zone cooking here.

What to serve with grilled peach salsa

Peach salsa goes great as a dip or sauce – or even if you just want to eat it by the spoonful! I don’t judge.

The unique combination of smoke, spice and sweetness makes this a great topping or side for most smoked or grilled pork dishes. Try it with our smoked pork tenderloin, or with one of our classic leftover pulled pork recipes.

For something refreshing in the summer, try peach salsa as a filling for grilled fish tacos or a BBQ sandwich filling. Failing that, it works as a fantastic side with most grilled vegetable plates, like grilled corn, tomatoes, or asparagus.
