This recipe was lacking. I'm not sure if my crab wasn't very tasty, or perhaps my papaya was not ripe enough, but the flavor was kind of blah.

This is a good, solid recipe, nothing I would serve to guests, but good for a quick lunch. I made it with imitation crab and I had to substitute a mango because the papayas at my grocery store didn't look so hot. Either way the coolness of the fruit offsets the heat of the jalepeno nicely. I would suggest making a bit more dressing and letting it sit overnight. I think the dressing needs something to add a bit more flavor, but it's still good.
