Ive always wanted to make my own papaya salad ever since i tried it in a restaurant back home Tongs Thai Cuisine. Ive been to a couple here in LA but hand downs nothing beats Tongs. Best thing is Mr. Tong grows everything himself and you know what that means don´t ya? ORGANIC! And im a sucker for organic. Due to my thyroid condition i´ve tried not to eat anything that could have growth hormones or ionizing radiation. So if you are ever in Honduras be sure to pay him a visit. You can thank me later.
Back to the salad.Fell in love with it in Honduras, got myself a Thai recipe book and off with the cooking. I love Thai food because everything is so fresh and healthy and this Green Papaya Salad is no exception. If you are a closet vegan and want to impress your friends and family, make this and no one will give you any sh*t for it, just say its Thai and they´ll shut up. It’s also easy to make, low-calorie, and very nutritious. So try this recipe for dinner tonight! Enjoy!
