June is National Papaya Month and we understand why after tasting how sweet they are as of late. This simple recipe, which would be perfect for the 4th of July or any summer outing, combines the sweetness of papaya with the zing of blue cheese crumbles and a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar for an overall awesome side dish. The flavor combination is altogether sweet, complex, and totally satisfying. Taking only 5 minutes of prep work, this recipe is beloved here at Mission Restaurant Supply- we hope you enjoy it too!

What You Need:
1 papaya
1 large handful of crumbled blue cheese (or more depending on your liking)
A generous drizzle of your best Balsamic Vinegar

What You Do:

1. Slice the Papaya length wise and scoop the seeds out of the two halves. Discard the seeds.

2. Continue by slicing long slivers of the papaya and then remove the skin on each piece.

3. Serve on a large platter and crumble fresh blue cheese all over the top of the papaya followed by a light drizzle of your best balsamic vinegar.
