The Healthy Tasty Cucumber Papaya Salad

Recently my husband was reading a classic book written by Harvey Diamond "Fit for Life Not Fat For Life" which advocates the importance of living food. The secret formula Harvey Diamond advocates is 50% Living Food 50% Cooked Food.The middle path proposed by harvey diamond is the best path and so does our ancient indian tradition of ayurveda. 

I have found this salad so delightfull that I have begun to have it first thing in the morning at breakfast and a great source of energy to begin the day. This light refreshing salad is the perfect combination that will delight your family and can be served to your family whenever they feel like snacking.

Papaya is highly recognized for its antioxidant properties, its fiber content, natural laxative abilities, and the enzymes that help with balancing stomach acid for healthy digestion. Cucumber contains 95% water and eating them is a great way to keep yourself hydrated.And with tomatoes rich in vitamin C, Collagen, the skins support system, is reliant on vitamin C as an essential nutrient that works in our bodies as an antioxidant to help prevent damage caused by the sun, pollution and smoke, smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture...


  • 1 cup chopped papaya
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped cilantro / coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
