This salad is sure to be a hit for a summertime get together or outdoor BBQ!
 1 ½ tbsp Olíva! Spanish Melgarejo Picual, or any Mild/Medium EVOO
 1 papaya
 1 cup red grapes
 ¾ cup feta
 10 basil leaves
 salt
1

Half the papaya and scoop out all the seeds. Cut the skin off each half and slice into small cubes, about ½in. x ½in. We want the pieces of papaya to be roughly the same size as the grapes.

2

Slice the grapes lengthwise down the middle. You can leave them halved, but we prefer to slice them once more to quarter them for better distribution throughout the salad.

3

Crumble the feta and set aside. Stack the mint leaves one on top of the other and slice on a bias to create thin ribbons.

4

Combine the Oliva! Lemongrass Mint White Balsamic & the Oliva! Spanish Melgarejo Picual until emulsified and set aside.

5

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and drizzle vinaigrette over the top. Gently toss until coated. Finish with more crumbled feta and a mint leaf for garnish. Enjoy!
