Papaya and Garden Herb Salad (serves 1-2)


You can make the salad with boiled shrimp (shell and intestine remove), thinly sliced boiled lobster meat, thinly sliced boiled pork, or chicken.  I have made my papaya salad with shrimp, lobster, octopus, pork, chicken and a combo of shrimp and pork.  They are all very tasty.  Today I made my salad using fresh garden herbs because I have it growing in my garden.  

 Ingredients:

4 C packed of shredded green papaya
1 C fresh herb (mint leaves, shiso, Thai basil, Vietnamese cilantro), torn
3 Tbsp Vietnamese dipping sauce  (nước chấm) or to taste
Roasted peanuts, coarsely ground, garnish
Chili pepper, optional

Method:

1) When ready to eat toss the papaya, herbs, chili pepper, and nước chấm in a large bowl.
2) Mix until all ingredients are blended.
3) Divide the contents into 2 plates.
4) Garnish with peanuts.
