Having not tried green papaya I did not know quite what to expect with this exotic sounding salad. It is beyond fabulous with the green papaya having a very subtle flavor and being wonderfully crunchy. The ingredients are all so fresh and combine to remind me of traditional flavors in dishes I’ve enjoyed in Thailand. The dressing is a mix of salty, sweet with heat, all perfectly balanced. Great in any season.
*Always be careful when handling chiles; use gloves preferably. The chile oil can be quite strong and cause considerable irritation if accidentally touching the eyes or any mucus membranes after slicing them.
