  • 1 large papaya paw paw peeled with seed removed
  • 1 large pineapple peeled and chopped into chunks (can use 1 large can instead, drain juice)
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • ½ cucumber peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp of cilantro chopped finely
  • 1 garlic cloves minced (optional)
  • 1 tsp hot sauce and/or ¼ scotch bonnet optional
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of 1 lime


  • Grab two freezer bags and double bag them or a zip lock bag.
  • Proceed to add the chopped pineapple, papaya, cucumber, and red onions in the bag.
  • Season the fruit with cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper, hot sauce and scotch bonnet
  • Drizzle the entire contents with the juice from a lime.
  • Tie a knot in the freezer (if using) or zip the bag then give a good shake so all of the condiments and juice fully saturate the fruit.
  • Eat straight from the bag (and go) or serve in a bowl.
  • Refrigerate any leftovers
