About Green Papaya Salad Recipe

This is a very healthy and a nutritious Thai style salad, prepared out of grated or shredded green papaya. The dressing has all the flavours and taste - spicy, salty, sweet and sour. Again there are many versions to this dish. Today I prepared this salad by adding some sliced assorted Bell peppers, onion, sliced kaffir lime leaves, coriander leaves and crushed peanuts to the grated raw papaya. I gave a slight twist to it by adding some crushed spicy fried Bombay Duck instead of the usual shrimps. The addition of the roasted peanuts and the Bombay Duck gave a crunchy effect to this dish. It can be made into a veg. version by simply omitting the Bombay Duck. It is a perfect light dinner option along with some clear soup for all the weight watchers.
