Palm Grove Papaya Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Missy Wombat

My toddler went beserk over this vegetarian salad on offer at the Palm Grove Resort in Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Shirley, the owner, was kind enough to share the recipe. Very simple, very quick and as my toddler says..."Nummy, dicious (Yummy, delicious)...more please!"

Based on other comments, I used 1 medium/large papaya, 1/4 cup of mayo, 1 T of curry powder, and added a few hemp seeds for texture. It was great by itself, in a salad, and in wraps with lettuce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add 1-2 T of curry to approx 1 cup of a thick white mayonnaise.
  2. Mix through the chopped papaya.
