Papaya and Kale Salad with Pan-Fried Wild Boar Meatballs (serves 1-2)

This is the last of my wild boar meatballs and I figured out how to extend another meal from just 2 balls.   I divided each ball into 4.  This gave me 8 tasty little balls!  I pan-fried them for about 6-8 minutes until they are cooked and brown. Pan-fried seemed to taste better as it kept the juices in. Grilling them added a smoky flavor but the meat was a bit on the drier side.

Papaya and Kale Salad with Pan-Fried Wild Boar Meatballs


1/2 small papaya, peeled, shredded, washed and squeezed out water
6-8 dinosaur kale tips, washed, drained and sliced
