Papaya and Mint Salad for Mother’s Day

Happy Spring! What are your plans for Mother’s Day? I always love that we get to celebrate Mother’s Day in the U.S. in May surrounded by beautiful blossom and spring sunshine.

If someone is going to cook for you this Mother’s Day (hint, hint!) why not try a simple tropical minty salad paired with some roast chicken and a glass of bubbly? This is a simple salad with bold flavors. I love to add fruit to salads and I experimented a with papaya and it worked. You could also add green apple slices or spinach or kale for extra greens and crunch. Have a wonderful time celebrating!

Papaya and Mint Salad for Mother’s Day
1 papaya, peeled and seeds removed and diced into 1 inch cubes
2-3 ripe tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 sprig mint, cut into thin slivers
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup black beans

Prepare all the ingredients and combine well in a large salad bowl. Squeeze the lime juice over the salad and you can also add an extra drizzle of olive oil. Season with sea salt and pepper.
