Asparagus, Potato, and Papaya Salad with Green Onion Dressing

Christine Datian and Bill Hodson, her business associate, created this lavish salad as the main course for lunch or dinner.

Sunset MAY 2001

  • Yield: Makes 4 main-dish servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus, rinsed
  • 1 pound thin-skinned red potatoes (about 1 1/2 in. wide), scrubbed
  • 1 firm-ripe papaya (about 1 lb.), peeled and seeded
  • 4 cups salad mix (about 4 oz.), rinsed and crisped

Preparation

1. Snap off and discard tough asparagus ends. In a 3- to 4-quart pan over high heat, bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook until barely tender when pierced, 3 to 5 minutes. With tongs, lift out asparagus and immerse in ice water. When cool, about 3 minutes, lift out and drain.

2. Meanwhile, add potatoes to boiling water. Cover and simmer over medium heat until they are just tender when pierced in thickest part, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain potatoes and immerse in ice water. When cool, about 10 minutes, drain and cut into halves. Cut papaya lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

3. Line a platter with salad mix. Arrange asparagus, potatoes, papaya, and olives on greens. Add dressing and salt to taste to individual portions.
