  • 1 mango, peeled,pitted and diced
  • 1/2 medium papaya, peeled,seeded and diced
  • 1/2 medium avocado, peeled,pitted and diced
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl.

Refrigerate several hours to allow flavors to blend.

Serve with tortilla chips.
