- Add to papaya/chicken mixture.
- Serve on lettuce leaves.
- Can use condiments: sliced bananas, shredded coconut, slivered almonds, sliced black olives.
- You can also just add the dressing to the chicken and celery and spoon this into a seeded papaya half.
- This is especially cooling in the summer if it is chilled in the refrigerator for an hour or so.
This is a very surprising dish. I did not expect much out of it. The papaya alone did not taste very good even. The only problem I had with the dish is being sad about the fact that papayas are not in season all year 'round.
