This tangy dressing is perfect for a salad of mixed greens. The recipe was adapted from one by Vicky Cowell, who writes an interesting and informative food column for the Herald Mexico, Mexico’s English language newspaper.

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 4 large scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh papaya seeds

Blend together the first five ingredients in a food processor or blender. Slowly add the olive oil, blending until emulsified. Add the papaya seeds, blending until they are crushed. Serve over mixed green salad.

Makes 1 cup.
