100 grams of papaya contains more than two thirds of the average daily requirement of immune-strengthening vitamin C.

You can sprinkle extra sesame seeds over the salad for added texture and protein.

Preparation steps

1.

Rinse the sprouts under cold water, and drain well. Peel and halve the cucumber. Remove the seeds, and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Halve the papaya, remove the seeds and shell, and cut into bite-sized pieces.

Mix the two oils, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, sesame seeds, and honey to form a dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Mix the cucumber and papaya into the dressing. Transfer to bowls, top with the sprouts, coconut shavings and mint and serve.
