This is the best salad for a nice hot summer day! The salad dressing can be used on sandwiches for a great kick. Add shrimp or crab meat for a full meal.

  • 1 head lettuce, romaine, organic
  • 1 papaya, fresh, organic
  • 1 lrg. avocado, fresh, organic

Wash and dry lettuce. Tear into bite-sized pieces and place in salad bowl. Halve and peel papaya. Scoop out seeds and save 2 Tbsp. of the seeds. Slice papaya.

Combine dressing ingredients in a blender until papaya seeds have the appearance of ground pepper. Store dressing in refrigerator.

Just before serving, add papaya, avocado and red onion slices to lettuce. Pour dressing over salad and toss. (you might have some dressing left over, but you’re going to want to make this salad again – soon!)
