Green Pawpaw Salad With Chili And Lime Juice

Perfect addition to any meat dish, fish or by itself just as it is. This is my husband's recipe. As usually he used the ingredients from our food forest we just had there and it turned out great! I just have to bring it up here and share with you as it is really delicious. Explosion of flavors! Of course you can play with the amount of  the ingredients and spices to suit your personal taste. I will add more photos here when we do the salad next time.

Green Pawpaw Salad with Chili And Lime Juice

Prepare the dressing as first. Combine together:

  • 2 tbs lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tbs brown or raw sugar
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 chili, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs finely chopped mint
  • 1 tbs finely chopped coriander 
  • 4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbs white or apple vinegar
  • 5cm fresh turmeric finely grated
  • a little dash of salt and black pepper
Combine together and put aside. Now grate on a mandolin or any other grater with larger holes:
  • 1 small or half of a large fresh green pawpaw
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 capsicum
  • optional: apple, green onion, shallots, celery, sprouts or what else you like or have in your garden or fridge :)
Mix it all together with the dressing and put into the fridge for about 30 minutes to develop the flavor. Enjoy!
