Home / Recipes / Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad)
A very famous salad from the Thai culinary repertoire. A sweet, sour, spicy and savoury medley of tastes with crunchy, crisp and tender texture. A perfect example of simple yet delicious food. Tamarind and lemon juice impart a tanginess which is perfectly balanced by the jaggery while papaya being rich in calcium, vitamin A and C is a real health booster. For this vegan version i didn't include shrimps and replaced fish sauce with soya sauce.
