Boma’s Papaya, Avocado, and Grapefruit Salad

From the gardens of Epcot to the jungles of Disney’s Animal Kingdom,

Walt Disney World has a bouquet of places to dine alfresco.

But if you can’t take in the blossoming wonders of dining up-close among the manicured topiaries, try this fresh fruit salad recipe at home in the comfort of your own backyard.


1 papaya, small
1 ripe but firm avocado
1 grapefruit
10 mint leaves, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
1 tablespoon honey


Peel the papaya, halve, and scoop out the seeds. Dice into one-inch cubes. Slice avocado lengthwise all the way around to the pit. Gently twist each side in an opposite direction to separate halves. The pit should remain in one side. Slip a large spoon in between the skin and the meat and scoop out the flesh. Cut into 1-inch cubes. In a large bowl, peel and section the grapefruit letting the pieces fall into a bowl. (Reserve juice for the dressing.) Add the papaya, avocado, and mint leaves; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, grapefruit juice, and honey. Pour the dressing over the fruit and toss gently.
