Papaya Salsa

This refreshing relish will help boost your immune system and keep your skin young and elastic. Papaya is rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, which your body converts to vitamin A. It’s also high in potassium. Certain enzymes in papaya aid digestion. Grace uses this salsa on grilled meats and fish, such as her Grilled Swordfish in Secret Marinade, and it’s also delicious as an appetizer with whole-grain chips.

YIELDS about 4 cups

2 cups cubed papaya, ripe but still firm
¼ cup seeded and chopped red bell pepper
¼ cup chopped red onion
1 tsp. minced garlic
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ tsp. seeded and chopped jalapeno pepper (optional)
2 Tbs. lime juice (about 1 lime)
2 Tbs. lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1 tsp. red wine vinegar
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon.
