Papaya-Avocado SaladMonique Cole | Delicious Living
- Serves: 4 people
Usually discarded, papaya seeds are edible and have a slightly peppery taste. It's OK if some of the pulp sticks to the seeds; it just adds flavor. The dressing is also good as a sauce for fish or chicken.
- Cut papaya in half and remove seeds; don't discard seeds. Combine all dressing ingredients in a blender; blend on high until papaya seeds are about the size of ground black pepper.
- Peel papaya and cut flesh into 1/2-inch cubes. Cut avocado in half; remove pit and peel, and dice flesh into 1/2-inch cubes. Toss papaya, avocado, and green onions with dressing to taste. Serve over endive leaves or mixed greens, garnished with nuts if desired.
