Description

This papaya salad is light and refreshing. I can easily eat a giant bowl of it and be completely satisfied. And as an extra bonus, this salad is pretty healthy. I sometimes add extra chiles because I enjoy a lot of heat. That's what is great about this recipe, it is easily customized to suit individual tastes.

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup peanuts
  • 2 peppers Thai chiles, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 medium green papaya, peeled and shredded
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ medium carrot, peeled and shredded
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place peanuts on a baking sheet.
  2. 2. Toast in the preheated oven until fragrant and browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Grind roasted peanuts, Thai chilies, garlic, dried shrimp, and sugar in a mortar and pestle or food processor. Stir in lime juice and fish sauce to make dressing.
