grilled salmon w/ white peach & cucumber salsa

i seem to have gotten myself into the weekly habit of making fresh homemade salsa.  it always ups the game for BBQ fish or chicken, and lends itself to the late night tortilla chip vessel snack.

this weeks salsa inspiration was due to some pretty looking peaches that were calling my name from the produce aisle.
it also happens that peaches are one of mr. handsome's favourite fruits, so i guess you could say i was banking on some brownie points too.

1 cucumber, seeded, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1/2 jalapeno, seeds & ribs removed, minced

1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

to make salsa:  combine peaches, cucumber, onion, jalapeño, cilantro and lime juice.  season to taste with salt and pepper.  refrigerate until ready to use.
