Thai Salad with Green papaya
grated green papaya – It might be tricky to find an unripe papaya in the store and if you aren’t lucky enough to have a papaya tree in your backyard, you can also use unripe or almost ripe mango as a substitute and can add grated green apple.
handful of peanuts toasted in a pan til slightly blackened
handful of dried tiny shrimp
Ingredients for the dressing
1 diced garlic clove
1-6 diced Thai chiles (how hot do you like it?)
3 Tbs Thai fish sauce
4 Tbs freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp sugar (to taste)
Assemble the salad ingredients into a big bowl, pour the dressing over the top, then mix harshly with two wooden spoons so that the veggies get a little beat up and infused with the dressing.
Serve and enjoy!
