Green Papaya Salad

By Mark Bittman

Published November 29, 2023

The fiery Northern Thai specialty that was once an anomaly here in the States — since unripe papaya was so hard to find — is now fortunately available in many restaurants. I crave it with any grilled meat, fish, or poultry, or even tofu. You should find green (unripe) papayas and long beans in Asian or Latin groceries, but you can also substitute Granny Smith apples for the papaya and use regular green beans.
