Green Papaya Salad

Green papaya can be difficult to find and sadly, this salad is not the same with substitutions. A trip to any Asian market is very likely to yield the fruit you are looking for…and it’s worth the search.

Makes 4-5 servings

Ingredient List: 

Dressing:
1-2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
Juice of 1 fresh lime
1-2 tablespoons organic soy sauce
1 teaspoon avocado oil

Salad:
2 cups shredded green papaya
6-8 green beans, ends trimmed, split lengthwise
5-6 cherry tomatoes, halved
1-2 chili peppers, seeded, finely shredded
2-3 tablespoons roasted organic or Valencia peanuts, coarsely chopped

Step By Step Instructions: 

Whisk together dressing ingredients. Adjust seasoning to your taste.

Combine salad ingredients, except peanuts and toss with dressing to coat. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with peanuts.
