  1. Can this recipe be made with shredded green papaya as a substitute for the diced orange papaya? Or is there a huge difference in flavor?

    This simple salad is downright amazing! That’s lunch for me! I have both papaya and avocado trees at home but never thought of mixing them. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Really delicious! Used half papaya, half mango–completely yummy! Served with the Black Bean-Butternut Squash Enchiladas and Cilantro Lime Rice from your stash , too!

  5. Really, really, really good. Never thought to combine avocado and papaya and did not know what to expect. Amazing how delicious and simple this salad is. Added to my permanent files now.

  6. I made this recipe last night and paired with BBQ grilled chicken. It was sooo good. Thanks for sharing Gina.

  7. I used to be the "Can't Cook. Don't Cook. Shouldn't Cook." in the family. ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HA. Now I'm AMAZING! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  8. This was an unbelievable combination!! We like to eat vegetarian at least once a week and I paired this with your Cuban Rice and Black Beans, as suggested. What a super satisfying meal! Thanks so much for all your hard work Gina!

    Nothing like impressing mom!

    A melon ball scooper would be perfect!!

    Magaidh- I love the onion but for those who don't, you can leave them out. Let me know how the jicama works out.

  10. Gina, I made this again this week (again! this is the fourth time!), and I had a brain flash.

    I've been mellowing those onions as you suggested, but my boyfriend still finds the flavor of them to be too much (he's not much of an onion-eater, in general, though I love them!). So here's my brainwave: next time, I'm going to try it with jicama! Same crunch, less pungent (/lingering) flavor. I'll let you know how it goes!

  11. This is very tasty. I've never cut open a papaya before, so it was a bit of an adventure! I used my melon baller and it came out great. This goes well with shrimp quesadillas.

  12. Made this for my visiting mom last week. She was so impressed with me 🙂 Truly a delicious salad!
