Green Papaya Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Nolita_Food

You can use green mango, or kohlrabi if you can't find green papaya. It's a little different from the Thai salad, since we don't use palm sugar, and we don't pound the ingredients with a mortar.

Fantastic! I love the flavor of the fish sauce and the lime juice. I buy the pre-shredded papaya or papaya/carrot mix at a local Asian grocery. I made as written, but added one teaspoon of low sodium soy sauce in my dressing, too. Thanks for a winner - I'm going to try this next time with grilled shrimp!
