Avocado Papaya Salsa

Avocodo Papaya Salsa by Amelia Freer

This zingy, zesty salsa is delicious with chicken or white fish, but is just as lovely on its own – it tastes so fresh and summery – plus it’s packed full of essential vitamins and antioxidants.

You’ll Need (serves 4)

  • 1 ripe papaya (or mango)
  • 1 firm avocado
  • 1/2 a small red onion
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded
  • 1 large handful of basil
  • 1 large handful of coriander
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • good pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey (or other sweetener of your choice)
  • freshly ground black pepper

Step-by-Step

1. Peel and deseed the papaya and dice into small cubes. Do the same for the avocado. Finely dice the onion and red chili, and put everything into a serving bowl. Finely chop the herbs and add to the bowl, then add the lime zest and mix well.

2. Squeeze the lime and lemon juice into a jar, then add the salt and honey and mix well. Pour this dressing over the salsa, combine well, season with a good pinch of pepper and serve with white fish and chicken, or simply on its own.
