This light and refreshing appetizer is very simple to make. The port wine adds an interesting twist and there is just something delicious about a squeeze of lime over papaya. The hardest part is cutting up the papaya. Lop off both ends, peel off the skin with a vegetable peeler, slice the long way, scoop out the seeds with a big spoon and slice.
