Green Papaya and Bell Pepper Salad
Jasmine, Season 5 (winner!)
56 down…43 to go!
So simple. So vibrant. Another great dish from the “Sides” chapter of the MasterChef Junior coobook. All you need is an unripe papaya, some bell peppers, and the ingredients to make the dressing are probably already in your pantry. If you’re looking for a healthy side in the midst of all of your indulgent holiday meals, consider giving this a whirl.
What I did differently:
- I threw in an orange bell pepper (the recipe only called for either a yellow or red)
- For the photo, I styled the bell peppers on the bottom of the bowl and placed the green papaya on top to let it shine
- I added fresh cracked pepper on top, as always
All my love,
Dani, a big tid
P.S. Have you tried papaya? I grew up in Hawaii and there were papayas everywhere!
