There are some fruit that simply tastes better in Africa. I am originally from South Africa, and amongst others, we have the most amazing papayas. In the Winter time, there is nothing that can beat this soft, delicious fruit. My children love to eat a big papaya for breakfast all by themselves!

Papayas are full of enzymes and are extremely nourishing to your stomach. It is definitely one of my favourite fruit - especially the ones produces by the African continent! For some reason the papayas in America doesn't taste good. Perhaps I was unlucky, or maybe it is a California thing, but don't try to eat a papaya, if you are used to the delicious papayas from Africa.

I love to combine the papaya with the mozzarella cheese and the basil. One thing is certain, you need to make the special Basil & Mint Dressing! Make a double batch and keep the dressing in the refrigerator to use whenever you enjoy your next salad. It is really good!
