I love the color of papaya and the nutritional value in it and buy it often from the farmer's market. But not always the fruit is sweet and if it is slightly sweet , I make a smoothie or milk shake. But the one which I got last week was absolutely bland and it wasn’t worth making anything sweet out of it. I make pineapple and mango salsa with bland pineapple and mangoes. These fruits turn out great in salads with some salt and pepper and that’s how this idea of pineapple salad came to my mind. Very easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious and refreshing. Do try it out some time when you papaya in hand and let me know how you liked it.
