Scale

Ingredients

 

Cilantro Lime Dressing:

Instructions

  1. If sensitive to onions, or to remove their “bite”, soak thinly sliced onions in salted water while you make the salad. ( 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup water)
  2. Halve, seed, peel and cube one half of the papaya, saving the other half for another use. You should have 3-4 cups of 3/4 inch cubes.
  3. Place the greens in a large, wide, serving bowl or on a large platter.  Toss with 1/2 of the onions.
  4. Place the papaya on top of the greens.
  5. Slice the cucumber and scatter over the papaya along with remaining onions. (At this point, you could refrigerate and serve later that evening.)
  6. Make the Cilantro Lime Dressing mixing all ingredients together in a small bowl or jar. (Spoon it over the salad right before serving, gently tossing.)
  7. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves, optional jalapeno and toasted coconut.
  8. Taste, add more lime if you like.

Notes

Avocado is also a nice addition.
