From Parade, 2004 October 24
1. Combine the lemon juice, mustard, garlic, cumin, sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Whisking constantly, drizzle in the oil until slightly thickened. Set aside.
2. In a large salad bowl, combine the cucumbers, papayas, tomatoes, carrots and scallions.
3. Toss with reserved vinaigrette and cilantro. Serve immediately.
Notes: Haven't tried it yet. "Don't season this salad until just before serving, or it will become watery." Yum, papayas. When is papaya season again?
The notes blatted skyward as they rose over the Canada geese, feathered
rumps mooning the day, webbed appendages frantically pedaling unseen
bicycles in their search for sustenance, driven by cruel Nature's maxim,
'Ya wanna eat, ya gotta work,' and at last I knew Pittsburgh.
