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


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.
