Scent of Green Papaya

I consider myself very fortunate to live here in Miami. This is my steady supply of the main ingredient for one of my very favorite salad: green papaya. If I feel like making a "oh so good and crunchy" salad, it takes nothing to start with one of these fellows by a friendly raid to this tree. During mango season like now, I also raid my neighbor's Keitt for a green mango. I can assure you that there is no way you can tell the mango from the papaya. They look and taste identically to each other, and both are truly out of this world. The hard work is in julienning the papaya and the mango but that's fun. Want to see that dish? Or do you want my super secret recipe? Drop in!
