TGIBN – Papaya Salsa for Chicken Burgers {Recipe}

Papaya salsa burger2

Summer is almost here. I say almost because we’ve all been experiencing some rather strange weather. Warm summer nights under the stars call for a fresher, lighter burger. We often go bun-free and just eat the burger with a generous topping. I love the combination of fruit and chicken as a burger option. The sweetness of the papaya balances the crunchy onion and bite of the chilli. I’ve added mint to add a little bit of refreshment. You can add more or less chilli depending on your personal taste.

This salsa doesn’t keep well and is best eaten within a few hours of making.
