West Pac Noodle Bar's take on green papaya salad brings a different take on salads, adding a heaping helping of papaya, mangos, carrots, and, yes, fish sauce.
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Sometimes, salads don't require any lettuce or greens. Sometimes, you just need the right mix of fruit and vegetables — and fish.
But as West Pac's Executive Sous Chef Jared Becker showed us, the combination is worth breaking out of your comfort zone.
Green Papaya Salad
What You'll Need:
Putting It Together:
Mince Thai chilies. Thinly slice the mint leaves. Add all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until sugar dissolves.
Cut papaya, carrots, peppers, onions, daikon, into long thin strips (julienne.) Chop the peanuts coarsely. Chop the cilantro.
Reserve half the peanuts for garnish. Dress all of the salad ingredients generously, there should be a pool of dressing in the bottom the bowl. Toss, top with reserved peanuts, serve.
