Ingredients for four servings:

  • 1 medium green unripe papaya
  • 1 medium carrot julienned
  • 1 small cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup coriander
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 1/3 cup roasted peanuts slightly crushed
  • 1/4 cup fried shallots


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 4 chili finely minced


  1. Start by peeling the papaya and slicing it in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and discard them. Soak the papaya in cold water for 15 minutes to remove the latex.
  2. Grate the papaya into thin, long strips using a vegetable grater or food processor fitted with the grating disk. Place the grated papaya in a bowl of ice-cold water and let it sit for 10 minutes. Drain and squeeze with your hands to remove excess moisture, then transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Julienne the carrot (grate it into long strips) and thinly slice the cucumber. Add them to the mixing bowl.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, lime juice, vegan fish sauce, garlic, and chili to create the dressing.
  5. Finally, add fresh herbs, roasted peanuts, fried shallots, and the dressing to the mixing bowl and toss to coat everything. Serve immediately!
