We are lucky to have several papaya trees in our backyard. They have grown so tall that now we have to use a ladder to pick the fruit, but that is a small inconvenience. :)

Lastly, add 2 Tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and toss lightly. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and serve. Enjoy with fish tacos or try this recipe with tortilla chips!

Toss the mango mixture with a very light hand to keep the diced fruit as firm as possible.

      As I don't eat fish, have you ever tried the salsa with a rice dish or other vegetarian entrees?
