This is a delicious Thai papaya salad recipe from Thai Food Cast. Watch the video below and learn how to make it as good, or even better, than your favorite Thai restaurant. A few GNG tips: You can often buy shredded papaya at Asian grocery stores and the produce is usually a lot cheaper than mainstream supermarkets. Also, it's worth picking up a clay mortar and pestle as shown in the video. I bought mine at a local Thai market for $7. Before preparing salad, soak the shredded papaya in a bowl of ice water for ten minutes to crispen it.
