Papaya Avocado Salsa Recipe

This Papaya Avocado Salsa Recipe was given to me by a great friend, who would serve this with tortilla chips as an appetizer. I think it would also be incredible served as a side dish with barbeque meats and fish. I recently took it to a dinner party and it was an overwhelming hit with all. Delicious, simple, fresh and nutritious… it doesn’t get any better than that.

1 Papaya  – seeds removed and cut into small pieces

½ red onion – chopped finely

3 roma tomatoes – seeds removed and chopped finely

1 avocado – chopped into small pieces

½ cup cilantro – chopped

1 lemon – juice only

combine all the ingredients and serve.
