I do have a great laugh at what some of the months are known for.  Here’s one that will make you smile.  August is known for ‘Sneak some Zucchini onto Your National Goat Cheese Month, and National Mustard Day which is August 2.  National Chocolate Chip Day is August 4 and International Beer Day is August 1.  August is also known as Orange and Papaya Month.  Let’s do something with an orange. Salsa can be used with most meats—chicken, pork, and fish.

Orange Salsa

4 oranges, peeled, sectioned and cut in pieces
2 juice of limes
½ bunch of cilantro, chopped fine
2 red bell peppers, quartered, finely chopped
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup pine nuts

Mix all ingredients together. 
Put in refrigerator for several hours.
Serves 4-6

Here is something using Papaya.

Papaya-Mango Salsa

1 papaya, skinned and diced fine
1 mango, skinned and diced fine
1 jalapeno pepper, diced very fine
1 red pepper, diced fine
1 small red onion, diced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients to make this salsa. 
Let stand and refrigerate overnight.
Serves 4-6
