This tomato-less tropical fruit salsa is sure to please! The sweetness of papaya and pineapple paired with garlic, scallions and a dash of fresh lime juice for zip is nothing short of exhilarating for the palette. Sweet, summery, and satisfying whether served as a side or as an adornment for grilled fish or tacos.


2 lbpapaya (peeled, seeded, and cut into a 1/4-inch dice)
1 1⁄2 cpineapple (diced fresh )
2 scallions (finely chopped)
1 clvgarlic (minced)
2 Tlime juice (fresh)
1⁄2 tsalt
1⁄4 tblack pepper


Stir all ingredients together.


Papaya is a digestive aid, so you may eat this salsa as a complement to foods that you find a little more difficult to digest. Fruit salsa pairs extremely well with fish; try a mild but meaty white fish or even a grilled mahi mahi steak. Optional: add fresh cilantro, chopped.
