With an over abundance of pineapples and papayas. I make this salsa often. It is simply
delicious over grilled Tuna Steak. My husband is always fishing. When he brings fresh caught tuna this is how I make it. It is fast and easy. We love tuna and make it often. I have no picture to post today. However, when my husband brings his next catch of tuna I will be grilling tuna steaks and will post a picture. Enjoy
