This salad is so fresh and delicious!
It is easy to make and is a perfect light meal on a warm day =)
Grate 1 small green pawpaw (peeled first), put into a bowl
Add 1-2 cups of sliced young coconut flesh
½ cup of basil leaves
¼ cup of coriander leaves
½ cup of sliced shallots
1 sliced or grated cucumber
Toss ingredients together.
Now to make your dressing, put the following ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth:
3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons of Shoyu or gluten-free soy sauce
2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
Fresh chilli to your liking (I used 1 small spicy red chilli)

Add a dash or so of water if you wish.
Dress the salad and let it marinate for about 10 minutes before serving with sesame seeds and freshly roasted peanuts to garnish =)
