    Green Papaya Salad

    The papaya or mango needs to be almost crunchy, so find the most underripe example you can.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 10 minutes 10 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • ½ very underripe papaya or mango
    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 1-2 fresh red chillies, or to taste
    • 50g French beans
    • 1 tbsp sugar
    • 2 tbsp lime juice
    • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
    • 1 tomato, deseeded and cut into strips
    • 1 tbsp chopped roasted almonds


    1. Peel the papaya or mango, discarding any seeds. With a sharp knife, cut into julienne strips.
    2. Pound the garlic and chilli together in a pestle and mortar. Cut the green beans into short lengths and pound very lightly, just to bruise them. Put the garlic, chilli and bean mixture in a bowl.
    3. Add the sugar, papaya or mango, lime juice, fish sauce and tomato. Mix together. Serve sprinkled with chopped almonds.
