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 by Bobi E. from Rincon de Guayabitos, Nay. Mexico.

Red Onion, Rum and Papaya Salsa

vegetarian recipegluten free label


  • 1 medium papaya, pared and diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 ounce dark rum


Step 1

In a shallow bowl, combine all ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to chill and allow flavors to blend.

Serves 4.

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.
