Leftovers for Lunch the next day! Whole Wheat BLT with SuperFruit Salsa and Stacy’s Naked Pita Chips. So good!!! No complaints from the hubby on this one either!!!!

This is a really tasty way to get those fruits in to the kiddos, too!  They LOVED it!!!!

If you don’t have Papaya around (I just like to buy crazy unique fruits at the market when I can find them, especially when they are organic or local!!!!!  The kids love cutting into them and tasting them.  Do this with your kids…you will be surprised with how much they like!!!  Starfruits and Kiwi are always big hits!)  Anyway, as I was saying…….If you don’t have Papaya around, feel free to substitue mango, kiwi, melons, etc This is a pretty basic recipe that you can’t really mess up!  I’ve made it with Mango numerous times!!!
