Fresh, colorful and aromatic, this salad boasts exciting flavors like lime, mint and Thai basil!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp chopped shallot
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup Chinese long beans, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbs Thai fish sauce
  • 2 Tbs palm sugar or light brown sugar, or to taste
  • 2 cups shredded green papaya
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, stemmed and cut into wedges

  • red chili flakes
  • 6 large fresh strawberries, hulled and cut in half

Directions

  • In a large mortar and pestle, or in a bowl with a metal meat mallet, mash garlic and shallot to a paste. Add tomatoes and long beans; pound a few times to release juices. Add lime juice, fish sauce and sugar; stir gently to dissolve sugar. Add papaya; pound lightly.
