My mouth is going nuts right now -I’m chomping on this phenomenal salad as I type and my fingers just can’t fly fast enough to describe the wondrous experience!
Obviously, I had to share.
I got this fabulously ripe papaya today at zee market and I can’t stop eating it, so…I based my salad around it. A fruit salad with a few other traditional, grounding elements -your carrots, your spinach, your cucumber…
(Just get to the recipe, already! -That’s my tastebuds talking.)
HOLY MOTHER OF SALADS RECIPE
-Fresh greens (I chose spinach. I nearly always choose spinach –you beauty, you.) And I like to cut mine up so they’re manageable on a fork; just use kitchen shears.
-Red grapes, halved
-Cucumber, chopped (I like to half mine, then chop so they’re not ridiculously huge wheels crammed into my mouth)
– Green Onions, 2-3 chopped (Adding these was a stroke of brilliance -WOW, it creates such balance and depth. I really thought I was about to make a bad move with these guys, but nope. Salad MAKER.)
-Raw Pecans, crumbled or chopped
For dressing I just shloshed some apple cider vinegar on and tossed.
