Weekly Ad Recipe – Tuna and Pear Salsa

Weekly Ad Recipe - Tuna and Pear Salsa www.cobornsblog.com

This recipe is very versatile. The flavor of the fruits really pop out at you when paired with fresh tuna. I have made this recipe several times. You can really change things by changing the type of fish to either swordfish or halibut, both work perfect in this recipe. You can also change the fruit around by using either peaches or plums. I love this salsa recipe so much I have also added it to pork chops or chicken. Enjoy…I did!

Georgia Peaches: Summer's Superfruit

Grilled Fish Tacos with Fresh Peach Salsa Recipe - www.cobornsblog.com

Savor the flavor of summer’s healthiest picks when they’re at the peak of ripeness. Sweet Georgia Peaches are a warm-weather favorite and you’ll find them at their best in June and July. This sweet summer fruit not only tastes amazing, it’s also a nutritional powerhouse. In just 60 calories,
 a medium peach packs in more than 20 different macro and micro-nutrients, including fiber, vitamins A, C, E, potassium and zinc. They’re also naturally free of fat, sodium, cholesterol, gluten and trans fats.

There are plenty of reasons why peaches deserve superfruit status. First, they’re an all-natural fruit. And a large body of scientific research shows 
that diets rich in fruit (and veggies) helps you maintain a healthy weight, and reduces the risk for many chronic diseases including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Chances are you’re not meeting your daily fruit requirement. A recent national study conducted by the Produce for Better Health Foundation found that just 8% of Americans meet their daily fruit targets.

The orange-yellow hue of peaches is a cue that they’re an excellent source of beta-carotene, an important antioxidant that’s converted to vitamin A. In fact, a medium peach (1 cup slices) has about 500 IU of vitamin A, equal to about 10% of the Daily Value for this nutrient. Vitamin A is an essential nutrient for optimal growth, bone health and vision. According to the American Cancer Society, some studies suggest that beta-carotene from colorful fruits and vegetables may even offer protection against certain types of cancer.

So pick up Summer’s Superfruit now at Coborn’s when they are at their peak of freshness for the year. And don’t forget to follow Coborn’s on Twitter and watch for your chance to win an iPad filled with Peach Recipes!
