Avocado and Papaya Salad

Winter is most definitely here in New England, but it is nice to think back to those warm summer days. That made me remember this salad which I made for the Fourth of July!

2 avocados, peeled, halved, and pitted
2 papayas, peeled, halved, and seeded
1 lime, zested and juiced
1/2 t salt
1/4 t sugar
1/8 t freshly ground black pepper
1/8 t cayenne
2 T extra-virgin olive oil

Slice the avocados lengthwise into 1/2″ thick slices. Slice the papayas width wise into 1/2″ thick slices. Arrange overlapping slices on a serving platter, alternating slices of avocado and papaya. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Spoon the dressing over the avocado and papaya. Serve immediately.
