  1. Place half of the mango and half of the papaya into the container of a food processor or blender along with balsamic vinegar. Puree until smooth, and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add almonds, and cook stirring constantly until lightly browned. Add brown sugar, and stir to coat. Remove from heat, and pour candied almonds onto a piece of waxed paper, separating any clumps. Set aside to cool.
  3. Just before serving, place romaine lettuce in a large serving bowl. Cube remaining mango and papaya halves, and toss gently with avocado and lettuce. Drizzle the pureed fruit over the salad and lightly salt. Sprinkle with candied almonds, and serve immediately.

This was a really tasty salad and perfect for what I had in mind. I did use less vinegar and butter but that is just a personal preference.

This was so refreshing. We had this as a side salad for dinner, but I could see this with a sandwich at lunch. The "dressing" was an unexpected surprise. I was concerned that it would have a ...

Fantastic! I'm not a huge fan of either mango or papaya, but this blew me away!

The flavors of this salad were amazing! Great textures, especially enjoyed the candied almonds. This will be a great accompaniment to grilled chicken in the future. Thanks for sharing!
