Green Papaya Salad


The julienned flesh of a green papaya is not as sweet as the familiar orangey-pink ripe papaya fruit and it has a nice crunchy texture. The flavor mixes well with green onions, sweet carrot and hot pepper dressed with lime, rice wine vinegar, mint and ginger.

Serves 4


Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper and toss to evenly coat.

Let the salad marinate for 10 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.
