  1. To make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and mango juice. Season well with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  2. To make the salsa: In a bowl, toss together the papaya, chile, lime juice, and sugar. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the spinach and basil with the dressing, then divide among 4 individual plates and arrange the smoked chicken over the top. Spoon the salsa over the chicken, or serve on the side.
  • If you cannot find a perfectly ripe papaya, then use a fresh mango instead.
