Avocado and Papaya Salad

I’m loving the summer for its abundance of veggies and fruits that combine so well in a salad, such as this avocado and papaya salad. A salad that’s only really limited by your imagination! I love throwing ingredients together and experimenting with the different tastes and textures – it’s also a great way to increase the diversity of your nutrient intake. And if nothing else, it gives you a break from the typical salad staples of iceberg or cos lettuce, with cucumber and tomatoes – not that there’s anything wrong with those at all!

Ingredients
  

  • large handful of cos lettuce leaves
  • small handful of mint and parsley
  • 12 yellow baby tomatoes
  • one ripe avocado
  • half a large red capsicum pepper
  • 1/2 – 1 cup of papaya
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions
 

  • shred the cos lettuce leaves into 1cm strips, then cut those strips in halves/thirds
  • roughly chop the herbs, discarding the stems if you prefer
  • half the tomotoes
  • slice the avocado
  • chop the red pepper into chunks
  • chop the papaya into cubes
  • combine all the above
  • then combine the mustard and olive oil to make a dressing
  • pour the dressing just before serving over the salad
