Avocado/Papaya Salad

Heidy served her Spicy Sesame Chicken with an Avocado/Papaya Salad. The tanginess of the salad complements the spicy chicken nicely.


The Avocado/Papaya Salad has a good balance of textures from the crunchiness of the Romaine lettuce to the creaminess of the Avocado and the tenderness of the papaya. The papaya also gives a good colour contrast to the greens with the speckles of poppy seeds.


  • 3 to 4 Romaine lettuce hearts, tear into bite size pieces
  • 1 Hawaiian papaya (peeled and cut into small cubes)
  • 2 Avocado (remove pits, peeled and cut into small cubes)


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoons green onion (chopped into small pieces)
