You will need a blender or a small food processor for this one . . .The ingredients for the salad itself are really simple . .
Fresh Crisp Romaine or you can do a combination of greens that are crisp
A Ripe Papaya . .(skin should be yellow) this ingredient is vital . . .without this you don't have anything to make the dressing with . .
1 Avocado (optional)
Red onion slices . . to your taste (optional)
- 1/3 cup sugar or to taste
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of the papaya seeds
1/2 cup of white wine vinegar or tarragon vinegar
1/3 - 1/2 cup of light oil . . .I used grapeseed but you can use olive or canola
2 green onions chopped up
Blend the ingredients together until the seeds are ground quite fine but you can still see them.
Put the dressing into the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. You can do this earlier in the day no problem.
Dice up all the salad ingredients . . .
Put the salad on a pretty platter, and pour the dressing on top of it . . this makes a really big salad and so if you are making it just for your family, only use as much dressing as you need and it will keep for another day.
I brought this over from my other blog. . . so. .you may have seen this one already.
