Papaya is a rich source of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and special digestive enzymes that have a remarkable effect both internally and externally.
If you’d like to improve your skin, relieve digestion problems, protect your eyes and heart and possibly lower your risk of many diseases like cancer, then consider the many health benefits of eating papaya.
You can enjoy it for breakfast, or snack, as well as a staple in your salad!
For the salad I made a dressing of cilantro, basil, small tomato, spoon of miso, lime juice and a little bit of tahini.
FYI, Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds, It’s one of the best sources of calcium out there and it’s high in vitamin E and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15. It gives a hearty and salty texture to your food which compliments the sweet taste of papaya perfectly!
After cutting one big papaya in small pieces I added also one cucumber for its rich water and mineral content making it so cooling and refreshing on those hot summer days. If you want to make your salad even more nutritios go ahead and sprinkle supperfoods on top like chia, hemp seeds and goji berries (although totally optional!)
