I love eating Lao Green Papaya Salad. I even packed a set of mortar and pestle in the suitcase so I can have my monthly dose of Tum Som or Som Tum.
Making Lao Green Papaya Salad.
Warm sticky rice goes great with Lao Green Papaya Salad.
It tastes best with fresh tomatoes. In this case I used wild organic tomatoes.
Lao Green Papaya Salad with Sticky Rice
I am fortunate enough to have found green papaya from Thailand or from other tropical countries here. Nye thinks I eat Som Tum almost daily, as stated in her Som Tum Going Inter post. She is quite right!
Enjoy your Lao Food!
