Red Onion, Rum and Papaya Salsa

papaya salsa

Wow! Papaya salsa with red onion and rum. I don’t think I would have thought to put rum in a salsa, but one of our members did.

This delicious sounding salsa recipe was originally contributed to Cookingnook.com by Bobi E. from Rincon de Guayabitos, Nay. Mexico.

Bobi says: This fruity, spiked salsa is perfect with spicy grilled chicken and pork, and gives grilled fish a new life!

If you don’t want real rum in the salsa, substitute with a few drops of rum flavoring. Careful though, those little bottles of flavorings are quite concentrated, so do only add a few drops.

I am not sure about the health benefits of the rum, although some will swear by it. 😉 I do know that all of the other ingredients are VERY healthy for us.
