Thai Papaya Salad



By Karnivore Kayla

Thai papaya salad!

If I’m going to go out to eat, most likely I prefer thai food. I love the variety of flavors in

curries and soups, and I want to bring those flavors to my kitchen! Now, I like to always

start out with an appetizer, either soup, satay, or spring rolls, but this side dish is so

refreshing and goes with any thai dish or just about any dish with similar flavors! Simon

and I had ours with some fried cauliflower rice and sesame chicken wings.

1 papaya, peeled and julienned

2 large carrots, peeled and julienned

1 large tomato, diced

juice of 1 lime

2 Tablespoons fish sauce

2 Tablespoons honey

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tablespoons chopped cashews

1 green onion

1. Peel papaya and carrots, then cut into thin strips or use a julienne slicer (target, boys

and girls).

2. Dice tomato and place in large bowl with carrots and papaya.

3. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, fish sauce, honey, cayenne, cilantro and garlic.

4. Pour the sauce into the large bowl and mix well.

5. Heat up a skillet on low, and roast cashew pieces for 5 minutes (don’t let these bad

boys burn!)

6. Slice up your green onion and add to salad along with cashews!

7. Now you can open up a thai restaurant.
