Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: 1 Cuisine -- 3 Dishes Dish: Thai Cuisine -- Thai Green Papaya Salad My theme for this week's blogging marathon is pick 1 cuisine and cook 3 dishes. Valli gave us 4 countries to choose from and I went back and forth between Arabian and Thai cuisines, but finally ended up picking Thai. So for the next 3 days I will be posting 3 different courses of Thai dishes.


23 serving

Total time

30 minutes




  • 1 papaya (Green - small, peeled and shredded (about 2 cups))
  • 1 carrot (- medium, shredded)
  • 2 cloves garlic (- chopped)
  • 2 chilies (Fresh Green - finely chopped)
  • 6 ~ 8 beans (Long - cut into pieces)
  • 1 tomato (- medium, chopped (I used halved grape tomatoes))
  • ¼ cup Peanuts (Roasted - chopped)
  • 2 tbsps lime juice (Fresh - or more to tastes)
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce (Light - or more to tastes)

  1. Select a firm green papaya and shred into thin matchsticks using a shredder or mandolin. Peel and shred the carrot .
  2. In a clay mortar and pestle or a large steel bowl, crush the garlic first. Add and crush the chilies, then add the long beans and continue crushing until well mixed.
  3. Add papaya and carrot. Lightly pound with the pestle while simultaneously using a large spoon to toss the mixture.Continue pounding and tossing until well combined.
  4. Add tomatoes, peanuts, lime juice, soy sauce and sugar. Continue pounding and tossing to mix well and evenly distribute the flavors.
  5. Taste and adjust the flavor with more soy sauce, lime juice and sugar to taste.
