We stare at the papayas in the grocery store and don’t know what to do with them!

I love a fresh cut papaya with a squirt of lemon or lime juice and a sprinkle of salt. However, I throughly enjoy the zingy flavor of a fresh papaya salad even more on a warm summer evening.

Peel and cube one medium papaya. Finely mince one jalapeno minus the seeds and ribbing. Toss with fresh, chopped cilantro and the juice of two large limes. Add a pinch of salt and sprinkle with crumbled white queso cheese.

How will you be creative with the pairing of fresh herbs and summer fruits?

Passion fruit kisses, a tropical breeze

Butterfly flickers, your lashes do tease

Cherry encounters of promised delight

Spray of seduction, the sea mist at night

Mango martini of unmatched desire

Touches of jasmine, fuel to the fire

Liquor of palm tree, coconut dew

Will keep me forever enchanted with you

Sunset of satin against raven hair

Pineapple mornings to bless skin so fair

Passion fruit kisses, a tropical breeze

To love you forever, papaya agrees

Passion Fruit Kisses, Mike Gentile
