Not quite Goi Du Du
Salad above is a modification of another reciepe.
The trick is to have just little more papaya then carrot.
1 medium (from our papaya tree in the backyard)
5 medium carrots (from the store)
Chop and julienne the papaya (different cuts make the salad more interesting)
In a large bowl
Soak the larger chopped bits of payaya in the lemon juice.
Add the rest of the papaya
and then sprinkle with kosher salt
Mix papaya and salt
Add carrot & mix
Into another small bowl
Squeeze out the exta lemon juice (the papaya will soak most up)
Add 1/4 teaspoon Habanero Sauce = Habaneros (from the backyard) mixed a blender add salt an a tiny bit of vinegar
Mix well adding a little extra lemon juice to ensure mixing.
Pour over payapa & carrot in the larger bowl and Mix well and Quickly!
Julienne at least a dozen medium Fresh Basil leaves (from the backyard) and add to the papaya & carrot mixture.
Lightly Toast about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of roasted pine nuts (I like more!) and add to the salad and serve.
