Papaya Salsa

While in Broome, we were lucky enough to have some super generous caravan neighbours.  Upon hearing that I was vegan (after declining on some fresh fish they had caught), one of them popped over with a couple of papayas for us. How cool is that?

I don’t have a heap of experience with papayas, and truth be told I find the flavour a little bland so I decided I’d have to make something with it. We had seen lots of Thai papaya salads around Darwin, but these were too ripe for that.

Instead, I decided to do a very quick and simple papaya salsa to have with some beans in tacos. The flavours are simple and fresh, perfect for dinner on a warm night.

  1. How lovely of them – I would love some fresh papayas right now! It’s hard to find them here in Oregon besides it’s our cold wintery season. I’m not a fan of fruit salsa, but don’t mind loads of seasoning & coriander & red onions (I bet that one is tasty!), but I had a mango guacamole in Mexico City which was pretty interesting.
