Summer Salsa

Summer Salsa aka the best thing I've eaten this summer. I swear to you I'm addicted to this stuff and I don't even feel bad about it because it's totally healthy!! I've eaten it with pita chips, tortilla chips, on grilled fish, in lettuce name it and I've tried it and loved it.
When summer produce is at its peak it can be easy to go overboard and buy a boatload of Farmer’s Market goodies. This dip came about after having an abundance of gorgeous summer produce and wanting to use it all in a unique way. Peaches, tomatoes, avocado and cucumber are all so fresh and light and flavorful enough on their own but then I added fresh herbs like basil and an unexpected punch of fresh mint which takes this dip to the next level!
I promise you if you make this it won't last long!

Summer Salsa
½ cup diced tomato
½ cup diced peach
½ cup diced seedless cucumber
1 large avocado, diced
1 jalapeƱo, seeds removed and minced
2 Tablespoons minced shallot
2 Tablespoons minced fresh mint
2 Tablespoons minced fresh basil
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt

In a large mixing bowl gently stir together all ingredients.  Serve with chips or baguette.
