Papaya Mango Salsa

by Nicole on September 23, 2012

It has been years since I took a chance on a Papaya. I have had so many disappointments, I just didn’t want to give myself false hope anymore. I was convinced I would never taste a lovely Papaya until the hubby and I could afford a second honeymoon somewhere warm again. However, the other day I saw a suspiciously healthy looking Papaya at my local grocery store.
I picked it up. I put it down. I picked it up again and kept looking. I decided to give it a chance. It wasn’t until later the next day that I figured out what I wanted to use it for and decided to give an added tropical feel to my mango salsa. Lime juice normally brings out the flavor of the Papaya and so it worked really well in this mixture. It is great with chips but could also be a great on chicken or another meat as well.
