Papaya Seed Dressing

I was introduced to papaya seed dressing by a very dear friend of mine.  He has a special place in his heart for Hawaii and made this dressing with a delicious dinner.  I have included the colorful salad that I like to serve it with, though it’s excellent with the simple salad that I was first served with it:  spring mix.

Spring mix greens


Mandarin oranges

Red Bell pepper


Papaya Seed Dressing

1 cup sugar

1 ½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon English Style dry mustard (I like to use whole grain Dijon mustard)

1 cup tarragon vinegar (apple cider vinegar will work as well)

1 cup vegetable oil

¼ cup minced onion

all the seeds from a full papaya

Run this through a blender until the seeds look like poppy seeds and everything is well blended

Note:  You can use less sugar if you like a stronger vinegar taste, which is what I like to do

While it is very good for eliminating pimples and preventing acne from forming, it is that more efficient for getting rid of acne scars. Apple cider vinegar is produced by fermentation, a process that turns sugar into acetic acid. While all vinegars go through the same process of fermentation, they still keep the flavors and benefits of their ingredients. So using apple vinegar is not the same as using wine vinegar. The latter is much stronger and should not be applied to the skin.;
