  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 2⅔ cups salsa + 36 chips + 24 cucumber slices

This sweet-and-savory fruit salsa is a treat for the eyes. Its mildly spicy flavor pairs perfectly with crisp chips and cucumber slices, but it’s also delicious as a salad topper. For best results, choose nectarines with pale yellow (not green) undertones and a sweet fragrance.
