Hi bloggers, I'm sorry that I didn't post any recipes last months, it's because I had an holiday in Jakarta-Indonesia, to visited my mom, family and friends. The whole months I was treated with many delicious foods (Indonesian cuisine) mmm unforgettable tastes. My friends brought me to the best street foods and restaurants. My mom cooked many dishes for me.
The other why I didn't post the recipes here, it because I'm busy with my new food blog DesireToEat.Com , please check it out! :-)
This time I post Papaya lettuce salad, it's criss cross recipe created by me :-), mixed exotic fruit with my salad-eating-habit in Germany. Papaya is one exotic fruit in Germany, it costs quiet expensive about almost €9-10. In Indonesia you could buy with small amount of money about €1-2. The ripe fruit of papaya is usually eaten raw, without skin or seeds. The unripe green fruit can be eaten cooked, usually in curries or stews. In Indonesian cuisine, the young leaves are boiled or steamed and eaten like spinach or serve as side dish. The black seeds of the papaya have spicy taste, it can used as a substitute for black pepper.
- 200g papaya, peeled, diced
- 100g lettuce, sliced
- 1/2 orange, press the juice
- 1/2 lime, press the juice ( 1 tablespoon lime juice)
