Living in the Peach State, I love to incorporate peaches into my summer meals. I made Georgia Peach Salsa and Grilled Chicken last night, and it got rave reviews, especially from the kids! This awesome peachy dish is made with fruit, veggies and herbs that are in peak season – so, the nutritional value is high and the flavors are amazing!

It only takes a few minutes to prepare – chop and mix the marinade and salsa, and let sit for a few hours. When you’re ready to eat, just put the chicken on the grill and top with the pre-made salsa. Voilà – a fresh, seasonal, healthy dinner the entire family will enjoy!
