1 pound peaches, halved and pitted
1 medium red onion, cut into ½-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped, or more to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Chop the peaches and onions; transfer to a bowl. Stir in jalapeno, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice and salt. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
