3-4 medium green papayas (papayas with orange spots are okay too)
2 cloves of garlic
4 small turmeric roots
4-6 basil leaves
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons apple cider or balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper
Peel away tough outer layer of papayas. Once you reach the light colored flesh, keep peeling fleshy layers into a serving bowl until you reach seeds.
Peel and chop basil, garlic and turmeric roots very fine, then add to papaya.
Pour on olive oil and vinegar, add a dash of salt and pepper.
Toss with hands to blend flavors and let sit for 10-15 minutes for flavors to soak in. Enjoy!
