Som Tum

(ส้มตํา)

Green Papaya Salad (Som Tum) is the #1 most popular salad in Thailand, and is especially loved by Thai women – perhaps because it’s low in calories and fat, but very high in taste and eating satisfaction, helping you stay slim.

This salad recipe is crunchy-delicious, whether served as a side dish/appetizer, or as the main course. Cooked shrimp or crab meat can be added (or cashews if vegetarian), or try eating it as they do in Thailand: with a bowl of sticky rice.
