This papaya salad is light and refreshing. I can easily eat a giant bowl of it and be completely satisfied. And as an extra bonus, this salad is pretty healthy. I sometimes add extra chiles because I enjoy a lot of heat. That's what is great about this recipe, it is easily customized to suit individual tastes.

This salad is delicious and just like they make it in HAWAII.... If you buy a papaya from the grocery store they usually are already having color inside so if you have an Asian market nearby, ask for the papaya salad.... papaya because they will be green inside and what you want. You can also buy a shredding tool that is less than $10.00 and it makes your salad perfect. LOVE THIS RECIPE Read More
