The combination of mango and papaya flavored with chile seasoning and lime is delicious and very simple to assemble. This recipe makes 2 pint or one quart jar. Cook's Note: This recipe can be doubled or tripled or...This salad becomes very watery after a day or two in the fridge as the salt in the seasoning draws out moisture from the fruit. I recommend eating it within 24 hours of assembly. In our house, it's hard to get it to last that long.
