Juicy, fresh peaches are traditionally known for their leading roles in desserts; but why tie such a sweet and pretty summer fruit down to just one course? We say unleash the peach’s full potential in salads, salsas and appetizers—and we suggest starting here, with any of these six recipes we’re particularly found of.

Peach Salsa with Jalapeño and Cilantro
This salsa is a perfect topping for grilled steak or poultry, but is equally good when served with a handful of tortilla chips. We love how the diced peaches’ sweetness is balanced by the spice of the jalapeños and chopped onions. Get the recipe.

The best way to preserve the taste of peaches long after the season is over is to can. Adding bourbon to the peaches will give a smoky flavor that can’t be beat. Use your canned peaches in chutneys, salads, and yes, poured over sweet indulgences too. Get the recipe.
