I love green papaya salad. A while ago a friend posted his successful attempt and I thought I’d give it a go. But, honestly I was feeling more than a bit lazy, and not terribly inspired enough to retrieve, and then prepare a green papaya. My substitution is a bag of prepared broccoli slaw, found in your grocers produce section. Honestly not a bad swap out.

2 cups green papaya, julienned (or prepared broccoli slaw)
1/2 cup carrot, julienned or grated
a handful string beans, steamed and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 small tomato, cut into wedges
a handful peanuts, chopped
cilantro

Dressing
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1 clove garlic, grated
a generous pinch of red pepper flakes

Combine all the ingredients for the dressing
add the veggies
toss well to combine
let sit for about 15-20 minutes, tossing occasionally

Serve garnished with a few cilantro leaves and the chopped peanuts
