Green Papaya Salad

Posted on: May 30, 2010

Ingredients:

For the salad:
2 pounds green papaya (may substitute 2 pounds carrots)
¼ pound fresh green beans
1 tomato

Salad Garnish:
¼ cup shelled and roasted peanuts, ground or chopped fine
Green lettuce leaves

For the dressing:
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
2 tablespoons sugar

Peel the papaya and julienne it, which means to cut it into shredded “matchstick” sized
pieces. These need to be as slim as you can make them.

Also slice the green beans into thin strips or short cut pieces. And slice the tomato into
thin slices. Optional: These two ingredients can be pounded with a mortar and pestle just to
break them open so that their flavors can be easily combined.

Meanwhile, take all the ingredients for the dressing and just stir them or shake them up in
a jar. The amount of dressing will seem like it will not be enough, but it will be ok. Make a double
batch if you like.

Finally, just toss the papaya, beans and tomato with the finished dressing.

Spread a couple leaves of green lettuce on a serving plate and serve the salad on top of
the leaves. Sprinkle the peanuts over everything and serve!

Other options for the salad:
¼ cup red bell pepper, cut into matchstick pieces – good for color if you are not using
tomato!
½ cup cilantro leaves

Other options for the dressing:
½ teaspoon chili garlic sauce (I use Huy Fong Foods brand with the rooster on the
bottle – see photo at right —->)
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped fine
2 green onions, chopped fine
