A crunch of celery adds a unique, yet complementary pop to this sweet mix of apples and fresh papaya, dressed with a bright-flavored lime-honey vinaigrette and finished with a sprinkle of raisins and chopped pecans.


  1. In a small bowl, lightly whisk together lime juice, orange juice, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt and olive oil. Set vinaigrette aside.
  2. Place sliced apples in a large shallow bowl. Add vinaigrette to apples, directly after slicing, and lightly toss to coat.* Add papaya and celery to apple; gently toss to coat with dressing, being careful not to over handle papaya.
  3. Arrange salad on plates, top with some raisins and chopped pecans. Serve immediately.

*Adding vinaigrette to apples directly after slicing will help prevent fruit from browning.
