Cooking with Chef Bryan - Fresh Papaya Salad with a Strawberry Banana Vinaigrette


Looking for a fresh fruit salad with tropical fruit? No need to look any longer because this salad with for you. Dressed with a strawberry banana vinaigrette this is a crowd pleaser.


1 fresh papaya, peeled, deseeded and diced

1 fresh pineapple, husk and center removed, diced

2 green mangoes, peeled, seed removed and diced

1 cup diced tomatoes

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

1 banana, peeled

1 cup fresh strawberries

1/2 cup olive oil

1 tbsp modified corn starch ( I used Ultra Gel)

salt and pepper to taste


1) Add the prepared papaya, pineapple, mangoes and diced tomatoes to a large bowl and gently toss to combine.

2) In a blender, combine the fresh lime juice, banana, fresh strawberries, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. I do like to add about 1/4 cup chopped red onion to the dressing and blend it in.

3) Blend the vinaigrette together until well emulsified. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently fold together to coat the salad. Serve and enjoy!
