Green Papaya Salad

Our friend Lynda spent several years in Thailand with her husband. When she cooks Thai food it is incredible! She has introduced this salad not only to us, but also to many Mexicans who never realized you could use green papayas. Of course, Lynda grows them in her yard…. Might be a little hard to find for our Northern friends…

This is great when served with chicken satay….

Green Papaya Salad

½ pound green papaya shredded in food processor

1 clove garlic

2 to 3 red Chile peppers seeded

1 tomato sliced

1 to 2 tablespoons fish sauce (yeah it smells bad but you don’t notice it when it is used in this recipe)

3 tablespoons lime juice

Lettuce leaves or cabbage squares (optional)

1 lime cut into wedges

Peel and seed the papaya. Grind together garlic and red Chile peppers in a food processor or mortar. Mix together the papaya, tomato, fish sauce and lime juice; add in garlic mixture and toss lightly. Serve with lime wedges and garnish with Chile peppers.

NOTES :  Shredded carrots or cucumber can be substituted for the papaya. Thais like theirs with ground peanuts! I agree…

Makes four servings.
