Hands down Green Papaya Salad is one of my all time favorite salads. Green papayas can be hard to find, but most Asian markets should have them.

  • 3 Bird’s Eye Chiles
  • 5 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Yard Long Bean (Cut Into 1 1/2 Inch Lengths)
  • 2 Tomatoes (Cut Into Small Pieces)
  • 1 Tablespoon Palm Sugar (Or Soft Light Brown Sugar)
  • 1 Tablespoon Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Shrimp
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 2 Limes (Cut Into Wedges)
  • 1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
  • 2/3 Cup Julienned Green Papaya
  • Grilled Chicken (Optional)
