Papaya salad is made from green papayas, and is a healthy & refreshing pre-season snack.
It’s almost papaya season! Although we still have more than a month until the papayas on our trees will be ripe, the green papayas are perfect for making salad right now.
If you’re familiar with Chrissy Teigen’s mom, Pepper, you have probably seen her chop the papaya directly! Although we aren’t on that level of ~pro~, here is our Homegrown Papaya Salad Recipe! We hope you enjoy <3 If you make this recipe, tag me on Instagram @elisehatsuko.
