    I am a Vietnamese and I must say that this dish looks so good and I have no doubt that Zen Chef’s grilled shrimp with green mango salad is lip-smackingly good.

  4. NYMY says:

    I love Vietnamese green papaya salad, but I think Thai also has this dish, or maybe they used mango. I am not sure. Either way, this is a light and funny post and I love it. Thanks Zen Chef.

    I will be visiting Vietnam in April, and I am just excited to grab a taste of this thing at their restaurant! Chefs Gone Wild, right?

  25. Kerrie says:

    I have a question, I am cooking blind here. I have never eaten Green Papaya Salad before, so I have no idea how a green papaya should taste. By itself the papaya was tasteless. Is that how it is supposed to be? Same question for the green mango, which I did not include in my salad tonight, but may in the future.

    The salad was really great, just want to know if I am missing some other flavor.

    Thanks!

    • You are right about green papayas. It’s the fresh organic taste that the salad should provide. If you have the green mango, you’d a get fuller bolder zingy sour taste.
