Sounds very nice. Sometimes I can get really good papaya from a local Asian shop and they are huge so I may use this recipe next time I get one. It's good to ring the changes and I usually just eat them as they are.

You know, talking to my DH last night while I was making this, he said, "In Puerto Rico (he's from there), papayas can get to be the size of watermelons." I want him to take me to Puerto Rico and prove it! Ha!

I've never seen them that big but when he takes you there and shows you ... take a picture to post here :excited:

Sounds like a great dressing for a salad... gonna try your dressing on a salad of greens, tomatoes, maybe some red onions, avocado, green peppers, cucumbers and maybe a few other things. Great dressing recipe and great for my chips too
