I was finally able to save money and make one of my favorite Thai dishes come to life. I bring you a tasty green papaya salad. Green papaya, as used in this recipe, is unripe papaya. These dark green gems can often be found at Asian markets and sometimes even your local supermarket. Make sure that the papaya you choose is VERY firm and a dark green. The unripe papaya has a jicama texture and an incredible flavor you will have to experience for yourself!
Ingredients:- 1/2 large green papaya or 1 whole med-small green papaya
Instructions:1. Peel the green skin of the papaya. Then use a julienne peeler to get papaya shreds. If you do not have a peeler you can watch this video for other methods but PLEASE do not cut your hands.
