    Chrissyo's Note:

    This is my version of a traditional Thai raw salad with a mildly spicy seasoning. I acquired the original recipe from the Blue Elephant Cooking School. The dried shrimp does tend to give this dish a strong flavour. Like my fellow garlic lovers here at Zaar, the first time I made this I used more than one clove of garlic, 3 to be exact, but in this dish to much garlic becomes overpowering and one misses out on the wonderful combination of flavours.

      Nice, authentic tasting recipe! All the flavors work really well together! I added shredded carrots as well. This season it's hard to find unripen papayas, but you want to look for the greenest ones with a harder to the touch surface. Thank you Chrissyo for posting this!

      I was having Thai Green Papaya salad which I bought from a Night Bazaar when I decided to check Zaar out to see whether there was a recipe for it. Lo and behold, I found yours. The ingredients are the same except for the last two and the chilli was red. The vendor also used a bit of shredded carrot and shredded green mango. It was delicious!! The vendor used a wooden mortar and pestle. I had it with fried chicken and it was a match made a heaven! Thanks for posting this.
