Recipe - Papaya and Lime Salad

The Papaya plant is originally from South America, but like the yucca, has become ubiquitous in Angola and other Central African countries.  This is a very popular Angolan dish.  You must use either Port or Malderia. Anything else wouldn't be right.

Papaya and Lime Salad


  • 1 Papaya, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 Lime, cut into wedges
  • 4 T Port, divided


  1. Peel and then cut up the Papaya.  I made mine ribbons with my veggie peeler to be fun.
  2. Quarter the Lime
  3. Arrange the papaya and limes on four plates
  4. Pour 1T Port over each papaya mound.
  5. Sprinkle with black pepper, if desired.
