Mexican Papaya Avocado Salsa with Lime Ginger Dressing



Have you had the chance to watch my new recipe video for this Papaya Avocado Salsa with Lime Ginger Dressing yet? Today, I am sharing the written version of this colorful recipe so you can try it too! You can watch the video here. Papaya is really high in lycopene, which is known to fight cancer and boost our immune system. It is also especially rich in vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. Don’t throw away the seeds, because they are extremely nutritious & they add a really special touch to this salsa. You can also add them for presentation. The seeds are very high in protein, healthy fats and essential minerals such as calcium & magnesium. They will boost your digestion and protect your gut from bad bacteria & all kinds of parasites. Top this Papaya Avocado Salsa with fresh mint or cilantro and your sweet Mexican meal is ready to be devoured ☺

2 tablespoons of date paste 
1 tablespoon of ginger, grated (or more to taste)
1/8 teaspoon of Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 large pinches of cayenne pepper

2 large cucumbers, diced
½ big papaya, diced

Papaya Avocado Salsa

  1. Combine cucumber, papaya, red bell pepper and sweet onion in a large mixing bowl. Add the dressing and mix well with a rubber spatula or spoon.
  2. Add the diced avocado on top to prevent it from turning into a mash.
  3. Garnish with fresh herbs such as cilantro, mint or parsley.


This papaya avocado salsa will last for about 3 days in the refrigerator, but I would advise you to only add the avocado to the part that you will be eating right away because the avocado will loose most of its flavor in the fridge.
