Sir Wes is lighting up the grill this weekend to get his wings on. As you must know it is the long awaited NFL Kick-Off Weekend. With coals already burning, I thought I would cut line and grill some peaches before the wings hit the grill for a quick salsa.
I do enjoy watching football, but tend to get distracted easily. I sometimes find that can watch all four quarters and not be able to tell you what happened. Not all games, but some…
Steeler’s Grilled Peach Salsa
- 1 1/4 pounds ripe peaches, (3-4 medium), pitted and sliced in wedges
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons red bell pepper
- 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
- Zest and juice of 1 lime
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Prepare grill, charcoal or gas, to medium heat. Brush the peaches sections lightly with oil. Place the peaches directly on the grill and cook until charred and softened, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and cool in refrigerator. Meanwhile mix the onions, peppers, lime juice, cilantro and a touch of salt. When cooled, chop the peaches into 1/4-inch pieces and add to the mixture, tossing delicately.
This salsa works will with chips as well as grilled fish, chicken, pork and anything else that might be on your game day table!
About half way thru the football season I will start to focus more about what is on the table then what is on the TV. By 3/4 thru the season the only thing that keeps me tuning in is the Steelers and my fantasy teams. I am a tough competitor (I like to think anyway) in 2 Pigskinner Pick ‘Em Leagues, the owner of one fantasy football team, and assistant coach to another. By this late into the season I have started planning the Superbowl Menu and tuning into Real Housewives in lieu of the 8:00 game.
That’s pretty much my football season, but for this weekend I am all in!
By the way- did you notice how shiny and pretty the Notre Dame Gold helmets are? Here we go! Here we go!!
