Papaya and Shrimp Salad

 This is, by far, the most favourite Appetizer I can serve. I love it…the flavours, textures are amazing.  A real winner, I promise.

 Serves 4-6

  • 2 ripe papayas
  • 2 heads butter lettuce
  • 1 1/2 lbs. fresh, cooked shrimp (med to large)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (not salad dressing)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  •  1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. honey (to taste)

Wash and spin dry the lettuce. Take one large or two small leaves and put on salad plates.

 Next, peel, remove the seeds and slice the papaya, arranging on top of the lettuce leaves in a pretty pattern.  Arrange the shrimp on  top and drizzle the dressing over the salad, using it all.

This is so finger licking tasty, it is insane.  Personally, I don’t much care for the taste of curry but this is so subtle. It is just fabulous.
