Nectarine-Mint Salsa

June 29, 2011

Author Notes: I first had fruit salsa, served over grilled fish, at a restaurant in British Columbia, and fell in love. I don't remember where I got the idea to combine my absolute favorite fruit--nectarines--with my absolute favorite herb--mint--but I'm so, so glad I did. Serve this over grilled fish steaks for a gourmet summertime treat.ieatthepeach
