What can I do with papaya?

Big Bad Voodoo Lou | Sep 14, 2008 09:49 AM

I bought a papaya yesterday, under the mistaken impression it would taste like a cross between a mango and a pineapple. I had only ever had dried papaya (which is very sweet, needless to say), but the real thing was rather disappointing, kind of like a bland canteloupe. I hate to waste it, so is there anything I can do to jazz it up? I was thinking about making smoothies with the papaya and some plain yogurt I have (unfortunately not the very good Greek kind), and maybe some honey or brown sugar to sweeten it all up. Any other ideas?
