This versatile salsa is equally delicious made with fresh nectarines. You'll need a 4- to 5-inch-long piece of ginger (about 1 inch thick) to get 2 Tbsp. of grated ginger.
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 large firm peaches, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Sauté first 4 ingredients in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in peaches and remaining ingredients, and cook, stirring gently, 5 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 days.

Loved this combination of ingredients. In my hastiness to prepare this, I skipped over the instructions to cook the ingredients. So I combined everything and let it sit. It was delicious this way and the ginger was so unexpected in a salsa. I increased the amount of cilantro by a tablespoon or two. Once combining all the ingredients, I divided them into two bowls. I added another jalapeno (unseeded) into the one bowl.

Really good salsa! Left us wanting something sweet after (even with all of those sweet late summer peaches). Next time: I plan to use one more jalapeno pepper; the ginger bordered on over-powering and needed a stronger contrast. Also, the prep time with all of the chopping/peeling/dicing took me far too long to complete by hand; use technology as you are able, for sanity.
