    Used different ingredients. Loved the flavour of the papaya in a salad. I added actual lettuce and made it a salad.  -  29 Sep 2008


    The flavour was good, I didn't use the food processor, but chopped it manually to eat more like a salad rather than a pulp.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I liked alot--my husband said it was ok! I made it spicier the next day by adding a serrano red capsicumand he liked it better then. I liked it even more!  -  29 Sep 2008
