It's almost Aloha time, folks and I am day dreaming about heading over to Maui in a few weeks. I am also looking forward to enjoying some Hawaiian cuisine.
Hawaii is known for it's abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables and this simple dressing can be used in a tossed salad and made in just a few minutes.
Papaya Seed Dressing
2 ripe papaya; peeled and seeded
juice of 1/2 of fresh lime
1 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon white sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon finely minced shallot
salt and pepper to taste
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and mix until smooth.
Makes 8 servings.
Notes: You can thin down the dressing a bit with 1 tablespoon of warm water added to the food processor during blending.
