Kick up your chicken with this delicious Grilled Chicken with Peach Cucumber Salsa recipe.
I wish that peach season would never end. Every week I look forward to heading to the farmer's market and stocking up on peaches and all the other amazing stone fruit that you can buy right now. My favorite farmers market has a cherum that is a combination of cherries and plums - don't get me started on how good it is. But no matter how many millions of varieties of plums and plouts there are, because there seem to be new ones all the time, I always go back to the peach and these days I am eating at least one a day.
So it's no surprise that this past week I decided that I need to incorporate some peaches into dinner time as well. Since I make a lot of fruit salsas, I went with a peach and cucumber salsa. The crunchy cucumber pairs great with the luscious peach and the lime juice adds some brightness. Then I just made a simple grilled chicken coated in olive oil, honey, soy sauce, and cumin - the honey helps create those dark grill marks - and you have one delicious meal. If you like things spicy, kick up the salsa with a few diced jalapenos.
