Simple Summer Papaya Feta Salad

1 cup papaya - peeled and chopped into cubes
1 tbsp fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp lightly toasted pumpkin seeds or walnuts
2 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled

Dressing (optional) - drizzle of olive oil or flaxseed oil

Combine everything in a bowl and enjoy!

Easy salad which doesn't require a dressing due to the sweetness of the papaya and sharpness of the cheese. Makes a refreshing and light dinner or lunch on it's own or with protein of your choice.  

Papaya is naturally high in enzymes to support digestive and have an antiinflammatory effect, it is also a source of vitamin A and vitamin C for immune and skin health. 

Pumpkin seeds are naturally high in minerals (especially zinc) - always choose organic.
