  • 2-3 nectarines, diced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tomato, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1/4 cup shallot, diced (or substitute red onion)
  • 1 bird's eye chili, seeds removed, finely diced (also called Thai red chilis, or sub jalapeno, or other hot pepper)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (plus more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar


  • Add the nectarines, tomato, cilantro, shallot, and chili to a serving dish and stir. Stir in the lime juice and honey/sugar. Taste and add more lime if desired.


About the Quantities 
You can vary the ratio of nectarines and tomatoes to your taste. 
  • If nectarines aren't in season or aren't available, this would be good with fresh peaches or mango. If using mango, you might not need any sweetener. 
  • If you can't find shallots, you can substitute red onions. 
  • If you can't find bird's eye chili, also called Thai red chilis, you can substitute with jalapeno pepper, or any hot pepper (test a small piece to determine how hot it is). 
This is best served fresh. You can store it in the fridge for a few hours or a day or so in a well-sealed container.
