papaya & roasted corn salsa.

Live, Laugh, YUM!

if you know me, i love incorporating fruit into anything!  i originally thought of making a mango salsa with corn, but corn and mango are both yellow and i thought it wouldn’t look as nice.  i decided to go with papaya because it has a creamier texture than mango and the corn has a crunchy feel.  i added some spice with jalepeno and tang with some lime juice.  perfect for summer!

   

RECIPE:

1 ripe papaya, diced (you can tell it’s ripe just like mango or avocado, if it’s a little soft)

1/4 large red onion, minced

5 ears of corn

juice from 2 limes

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 jalepenos, seeds removed and diced

salt & pepper to taste

in a large bowl, add papaya, red onion, lime juice, cilantro, jalepenos, and olive oil

boil corn for about 5 minutes

transfer to grill and roast on all sides…
