Papaya salsa

Papaya Salsa1


This salsa is bright and sweet, taking advantage of the tropical flavours available at the height of summer. The lime and chilli give balance to the mango and papaya. There’s a lovely crunch to the cucumber and fresh capsicum. It makes the perfect accompaniment to chips and fajitas.

Health Benefits:

This tropical fruit salsa features papayas, which contain vitamin C, folate, potassium and fiber. When shopping for a ripe papaya, look for skin that is turning from green to yellow. These bright colors also signify an abundance of carotenoids (including lycopene), anti-inflammatory antioxidants that may help protect against cancer and other chronic diseases. Low in calories, cholesterol free, papaya is a rich source of phyto-nutrients, minerals, dietary fiber, and vitamins.

Looking for a light snack that won’t make you shudder with guilt? In 30 minutes, you can have a batch of deliciously seasoned, guilt-free, baked Chips. I added plenty of paprika to my baked potato chips but it can be altered as per the spice preferred. A thin layer of extra virgin olive oil is brushed on both sides to crisp them up and turn the color a gorgeous golden brown.
