Raw Papaya Mango Salad

To eat raw, you don't need to use complex equipments (high speed blenders, dehydrators, etc.) or  complex ingredients/techniques. This simple salad can be put together with ingredients that grow in your backyard. That is if you live in Kerala or somewhere tropical where you can grow mangoes, papaya and coconuts in your backyard :-). I don't have that luxury living in the cold New England area. So whenever I get fresh raw mango and papaya from the local Indian store, I make this salad. 

  • Raw papaya - 1 cup - peeled and grated
  • Raw mango - 1 cup - peeled and grated
  • Shredded coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Green chilly - 1 - chopped fine
  • Virgin coconut oil - 1 Tbs. - melted
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp - crushed
  • Sea salt as per taste


Toss everything together, let it sit for 5-10 minutes - enjoy the fresh-raw-crunchy salad.

Note: If the raw mango is not sour, you might want to add a tablespoon o lemon juice.
