The salad was sold by an old lady with a mobile cart, equipped only with her mortar and pestle plus the ingredients. At first bite, I fell immediately in love. Som Tum is the epitome of Thai cuisine: perfect blends of hot, sour, salty, and sweet.
To make authentic green papaya salad, I turned to She Simmers. If you live close to Asian supermarkets, you can find shredded green papaya.
In any case, this green papaya recipe is utterly delicious, fiery, and addictive. Enjoy!
