Baked Salmon with Pineapple Peach Salsa

I went to the Olive Oil Store the other day and bought Lemon Olive Oil (which I use ALL the time, but sadly ran out) and Peach Balsamic Vinegar.  I liked the thought of mixing the two together in salads and was day dreaming about all of the wonderful recipes I could make with this delicious combination.  I decided that I'd create something fresh and full of flavor, and this is what I came up with!  I have to say that I am so impressed with myself, because this meal was incredible!

2 salmon fillets
1 T Lemon Olive Oil
1 t Peach Balsamic Vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Mix olive oil and vinegar together and use either your hands or basting brush to coat salmon.  Sprinkle with s & p and bake in 350 oven for 12-15 minutes or until internal temp is 145.

While the salmon is baking, you can make your salsa.  It's so simple and will probably be better after it sits for a day or so.

1 c. fresh pineapple chopped into small pieces
1 c. skin on peaches finely chopped
1/4 c. red onion finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno pepper finely chopped
handful of fresh cilantro finely chopped
1-2 T peach vinegar (to taste)
a pinch of salt

Mix everything together and let sit

Once your salmon is done, just spoon a generous amount of the salsa on top and serve.  I ate mine with steamed broccoli.  It would probably be good with asparagus too.
