Thai Green Papaya Salad

Thai Green Papaya Salad – a popular Thai salad made with raw papaya, mango, carrots and tomatoes.

Thai Green papaya salad also known as Som Tam salad is a delicious, sweet, spicy and tangy salad from Thai cuisine. Earlier, whenever I made this salad, I used soya sauce alongwith other ingredients for the dressing. But this particular recipe for Thai papaya salad  is from the Satvic Movement food book. This recipe requires all natural ingredients and turns out absolutely delicious. So, here’s the recipe for Satvic Thai green papaya salad:
