Green Papaya Salad with Chilli Dressing

I used my julienne mandolin to thread the fruit into strands and proceeded to mix and match the ingredients. Raw veggies such as celery, cucumber, radishes go really well here. You can also add blanched beans and broccoli which are great for slurping up the sauce. If you're nut-free try adding some pumpkin or sunflower seeds to the mix. You can find green papayas in most Asian grocers.

For the Salad:

  • 1/2 green papaya
  • 1/2 small carrot

  • 2 cups mixed lettuce leaves
  • 2-3 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/8 cup raw cashews

For the Chilli Dressing

  • 1 red long chilli
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey or rice syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced

To serve:

  • Lemon wedge


To make the Salad:

  • Wash and peel green papaya. Using a julienne peeler or julienne mandolin, shave papaya and carrot into long thin threads. Finely slice the radish. Toss julienned papaya, carrots and radish in a bowl with lettuce leaves to mix. Divide between two serving bowls. Cut cherry tomatoes into quarters and divide between bowls. Top with cashews (or seeds).

To make the dressing:

  • Finely chop chilli, removing all or most of the seeds depending on how hot you like the dressing to be. Place in a small jar with remaining ingredients and shake to combine.

To serve:

  • Serve salad with dressing drizzled on top and a lemon wedge.
