This simple salad is amazingly delicious. It is difficult to find green papayas, so you will have to search Asian markets for it. You can make the dressing in a food processor as long as you do not pulse it too fine.

Ingredients


  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 small red chile, seeds and stem removed, minced.

  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts

  • 1/4 cup small dried shrimp (available in Asian markets)

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon palm sugar

  • 1 green papaya, peeled, seeds removed, julienned

  • 2 ounces green beans, cut into ½-inch pieces

  • 1 medium tomato, choppe



Instructions


In a wooden mortar or pestle, crush together the garlic, chile, peanuts and shrimp. Add the fish sauce, lemon juice, and sugar and mix well. In a bowl, combine the papaya, beans and tomato and mix well. Add the dressing from the mortar and toss.
