Tropical Dressing

You’ll find a lot of papaya seed dressing versions on this here blog. That’s because I have such a hard time discarding the healthful, enzyme rich seeds that harbor inside delicious papaya. But this time I went so left, it was right. Plus this banana vinegar that our friends Heidi and Josh gifted us for Shea’s #2 birthday is so delicious I take secretive sips out of the bottle it’s that good. So here’s what I have to share – it’s a backdoor salad dressing that way off the cuff – and the hook.

  • seeds from 1 papapya (medium or so)
  • 1 lilikoi – juice and seeds
  • cover with banana vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 3 garlic chives with flowers
  • 1 medium nub of ginger, chopped
  • 1.5 Tbsp local honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt

Blend until well combined. Enjoy over fresh greens or as a dipping sauce.
