Thai Green Papaya Salad
If you want to be whisked away mentally to the warmer climes of Asia or some other glorious sub-tropical climate that you can't quite reach right now, then this is the dish to take you there.
It's delicious as a side or the main affair and packs a punch in spice and all things nice!
And it goes delightfully well with our Cheeky Goat Pinot Gris.
What you’ll need:
5 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons (packed) palm sugar or golden-brown sugar
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons dried shrimp, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 Chinese long beans, halved crosswise or 15 green beans
1 – 2 Kgs of green papaya, peeled, halved, seeded
10 large cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup chopped fresh coriander
2 green onions, very thinly sliced
1 fresh red Thai chilli with seeds, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped salted peanuts
Whisk the first five ingredients in a medium bowl. Set dressing aside.
Cook beans in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Rinse under cold water. Cut into 2-inch pieces.
Using a julienne peeler, peel enough papaya to measure 6 cups. Place in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, coriander, green onions, chile, and green beans.
