Free yoga mat giveaway! (And hot sauce discount.) Now: Papaya Salad. Papaya salad is in both Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. My favoritefavorite is the Vietnamese version of papaya salad, but I suppose this is kind of a mix of both.
I love papaya salad. So much so that I had it for dinner 2 nights in a row.
Ingredients and Method
- green papaya
- shrimp, sauteed in peanut oil with soy sauce and chili powder
- dressing: fish sauce, vinegar, peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, hot sauce
- topping: PB2
To slice the papaya into such tiny strips (which is the only way to enjoy green papaya), I first used my mandoline to slice the papaya in thin strips. Then I just cut up the strips. It didn’t take long at all.
Papaya salad is a good reward and a great way to celebrate…
Celebrate finishing my wedding invitations that is! Almost all of them were mailed out today.
I know I owe you that explanation for why I suddenly have more time. The truth is, I don’t really have that much more time. I cut back to part time at my job and I am taking a class in the evenings, but the class ends up taking up 4-5 hours of my night… so I have about the same amount of free time as I did before. But I love the class. It’s a linguistics class.
Have you ever taken a class after you graduated college? Do you like papaya salad?
