    This is JUST delicious! All the colors of the rainbow make for a beautiful presentation too. The sweet potato is the star in this. I think in a pinch you could leave the papaya out, it gets a tiny bit lost. We used a fresh red pepper in lieu of the roasted, and were glad for the crunch it provided. Also doubled the watercress, used less oil, subbed green onion and served it with baked corn tortilla chips. This would be great for a potluck if the folks aren't too unadventurous. The flavors are so yummy together! Serves 2-3 if it's a main course.

    I brought this for a Father's Day group picnic and it was a major hit. So many requests for the recipe too! I did add some white stevia extract because I was not sure my papaya was ripe enough. This is a keeper Oh and I garnished it with organic blue corn tortilla chips--beautiful!

    I loved this salad, great flavors. Didn't have garlic oil, so I substitued walnut oil and a clove of garlic. I also didn't add the watercress, since I'm not a big fan of watercress I didn't miss it. I cut the recipe in half and it turned out fine. I wasn't sure if the combination of flavors would be good, I made it based on other reviews, I was not disappointed, it is going in my regular rotation of recipes.

    I loved this recipe!! It is beautiful, healthy, and so full of wonderful taste sensations. Everyone of the ingredients was important (imho) for taste and for color. I cut this recipe in half, with no problems, so the salad didn't sit long enough for the watercress to get soggy. I can recommend this salad if you want something different, and something wonderful. Thanks so much for posting such a lovely recipe.
