Chef Wes Hardisty's family recipe for a fruity, salsa that's perfect for dipping and pairs wonderfully with fish and seafood.


1 papaya
2 mangoes
2 apples
7 Roma tomatoes
½ red onion
1 bunch cilantro
1 pinch kosher salt
1 pinch black pepper
¼ cup white sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 dash hot sauce (to taste)
1 lemon

Large bowl
Cutting board 


  1. Cut the papaya in half and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Carefully remove the skin, cut into a small dice, and place in a large bowl.
  3. Cut the flesh away from the mango seed, then slice, remove the skin, and cut into a small dice. Add to the bowl.
  4. Remove the cores from the apples and dice (no need to peel). Add to the bowl and give everything a mix to help prevent the apples from browning.
  5. Dice the tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro and add to the bowl.
  6. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  7. Stir in the vegetable oil, rice wine vinegar, and a dash of hot sauce.
  8. Juice the lemon into the bowl and mix well.
  9. Serve with chips and enjoy!
