Day 28 of Salad a Day
Papaya Lime Salad
I’m continuing the summer fruit theme with today’s salad. Sliced papaya mixed with peas, beans and sprouts. The combination of papaya lime and crunchy peas and beans is fresh and crisp and with the taste of summer. This is a great mix of flavours that can leave you thinking of balmy nights in a tropical paradise. Just close your eyes with each bite and I’m sure you can imagine yourself there!
I’m going to say this, but I wouldn’t do it – You could replace the papaya with mango. So why wouldn’t I do it? I don’t like mango! Gasp! I know.
There, I’ve said it. I don’t like mango. Whenever I say that, people tell me I must be crazy, I must be the only one in the world who doesn’t like mango. Apparently everyone loves mango. Except me. I like papaya, in thin slices but not mango. If mango is your thing then add it in slices or cubes to this salad and enjoy it.
This is part of #saladaday – A fresh, new salad everyday for 30 days. After being inundated with requests to have all the salad recipes together, I’ve collated them all into an ebook, which is on sale here.
