    About this recipe: If you prefer or can't find an unripe papaya, cucumber can be used instead. The ingredients in this Thai-style salad are mashed together into a chunky, pulpy mixture and topped with peanuts.

    Serves: 6 

    • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 3 fresh green chillies
    • 6 green beans, cut into small pieces
    • 1 large unripe papaya - peeled, seeds removed and cut into thin strips
    • 1 tomato, halved and seeded
    • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon dark brown soft sugar
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts

    Prep:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a blender or food processor, coarsely chop the garlic, chillies and green beans. Mix in the papaya, and process into small chunks. Mix in the tomato, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar. Process the mixture until soft and slightly chunky. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the peanuts. Cover, and refrigerate until serving.


    Instead of bringing out the food processor, or if you don't have one, you can always chop all of the ingredients by hand!

    I used less garlic and red chillies instead of green ones, but still it was great! - 06 Mar 2012
