Tropical Avocado, Papaya & Ginger Salad

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This is easy, simple nutritious and delicious! I created this recipe as a spin on a family favorite —  it’s our entrée before our Christmas feast and often enjoyed in the warmer months as a lunch dish or as a refreshing side. The fruits used in this salad (papaya and mango) may not be readily available to people all around the world at the moment but using substitutions and keeping it for those warmer months will certainly be worth it. Papaya is an excellent nutrient dense fruit that contains specialized phyto-compounds and high antioxidant content. It’s a great source of proteolytic enzymes that help with the digestion of food. If you like the looks of this salad, you’ll also enjoy our Sweet Mango, Avocado, Tomato Salad Recipe.
