This classic, sweet-tart Hawaiian dressing gets a peppery kick from ground up papaya seeds. Drizzle over baby lettuce or papaya flesh.


  • 12 cup tarragon vinegar
  • 13 cup honey
  • 1 12 tsp. dry English mustard
  • 34 tsp. kosher salt
  • 34 cup olive oil
  • 1 12 tbsp. papaya seeds (from about 1/2 papaya)
  • 1/2 large shallot, minced


Step 1

In a blender, combine the vinegar with the honey, mustard, and salt. With the machine one, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the dressing is emulsified.

Step 2

Add the papaya seeds and shallot, and pulse until the seeds are coarsely chopped. Pour the dressing into a bottle and close. Refrigerate the dressing for up to 2 weeks.
