Papaya is a good source of calcium, potassium, vitamins A, B, and C. It contains an enzyme, called «papain», which can act as a meat tenderizer and also helps digestion.

Ingredients

1/2 cup orange juice 125 mL
2 tsp balsamic vinegar 10 mL
2 tsp Dijon mustard 10 mL
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1 g
1 papaya, red, cut into bite-size pieces 1.5 kg
4 cups mixed greens 100 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Pour the orange juice in a large bowl, then add the balsamic vinegar, mustard, and Cayenne pepper. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well with a fork and set aside.
  2. Cut the papaya in half lengthwise and remove the black seeds. Peel and discard the skin which is not edible. Cut the pulp into bite-size pieces (about 1,5 cm), place them in the bowl, then set aside at room temperature for about 10 min.
  3. Add the mixed greens, adjust the seasoning, and serve immediately.

Remarks

Because the «papain» tends to wilt the greens rapidly, prepare and eat this salad right away.
