Recipe | Spicy papaya salsa

Disclaimer: papaya can cause an allergic reaction in people allergic to latex

This recipe is a delicious fruity alternative to a mango or pineapple salsa. Papaya is not too sweet so its perfect for a savoury, spicy salsa.

This recipe is so easy and so quick but very tasty; I love it with fajitas or nachos!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large tomato
  • Half a papaya, with skin and seeds removed
  • 0.5 tsp chopped garlic / 1 small chopped clove
  • 1 tsp crushed ginger (I used pre-crushed from a jar)
  • 0.5tsp chilli flakes
  • A quarter of a small red onion
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Pepper to taste

Recipe:

  • Finely chop the tomato, papaya and onion and add to a bowl

  • Add the garlic, ginger, chilli and lime and black pepper to taste
  • Stir well and leave to stand for at least 30mins before serving

  • Stir occasionally
  • Its that easy!! Serve with nachos, fajitas, chilli, or your favourite spicy dish
