Compressed Papaya, Mango & Avocado Salad


1/2 papaya, peeled, sliced into roughly 1” x 3” pieces

1 champagne mango, peeled, sliced into roughly 1” x 3” pieces

1 avocado, peeled, sliced into roughly 1” x 3” pieces

For the Lime Vinaigrette

1 tbs. lime juice

2-3 tbs. olive oil

salt and pepper to taste


Juice the lime, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and whisk to dissolve. Whisk the olive oil into the lime juice, until emulsified. check the balance and seasoning. 

Brushing each piece with of the thinly sliced papaya, mango and avocado with the lime vinaigrette and Layer in the mold overlapping as needed. Pay special attention to the bottom layer and corners for stability. 

Wrap the plastic over the top of the salad. We had previously cut out a piece of cardboard that matches the opening of the mold and wrapped it in aluminum foil. We added a little weight on top of the mold — a large head of cabbage balanced on top works well — and refrigerated for 2 hours.

Then we cut it while it was still wrapped in the plastic and then gently removed it afterward. 


The compressed salad is basically the same as a fruit terrine — the trick is to use a rectangular mold (we used a sushi rice block mold) — but any rectangular mold will work, just line it with plastic wrap.
