Papaya salsa


Papaya Salsa1

About:

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.

About:

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.
