Green Papaya Salad

When I presented this papaya salad to my friends, one of them asked me why I added cherry tomatoes. I told her to balance the sour of lemon and passion fruit. This is just to show that I made this on my own taste. If vinegar will be added here, I would definitely not eat it. ) I have this papaya in the refrigerator for over a week, that's why it turned out orange, it's almost ripe :)

2 cups green papaya, finely shredded
2 tablespoon peanuts, toasted
6 pieces cherry tomatoes, sliced
6 pieces green beans, sliced

For the dressing: Blend the following
2 cloves garlic
2 pieces shallots
1 piece chili
1 teaspoon salt (or fish sauce)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoon lime juice
1 passion fruit juice - I didn't remove the seeds :)
Place the shredded green papaya, green beans, and cherry tomatoes in a  salad bowl. Drizzle with dressing. Toss until well-mixed. Top with toasted peanuts.

Boiled shrimps and parsley can be added. Enjoy!
I love this, I will definitely make again :)

I love this with grilled foods. I am not fun of sour soup or even sour salads. So i enjoy them depending on my moods.

Thanks for playing along, Lani!

I once had green papaya salad and it was to die for. I am so glad to have a recipe so I can make it myself now. Thank you for linking up with Vegetarian Foodie Fridays!

Lisa said...

I once had green papaya salad at a restaurant but it didn't look anywhere near as good as yours does.

Dan said...

That looks really yummy.

Shredded papaya? That's so cool! When I was looking at the list of ingredients I was thinking "where are the rice noodles." Then it clicked.
