Thai Green Papaya Salad (Paleo)

If you're lucky enough to find a green papaya, this recipe by Yokam Ottolenghi for "Radish, Daikon and Green Papaya Salad" will provide all the crunchy goodness found on a food truck in Bangkok ~

Included as one of the "Recipes for Winter Salad & Slaws" here, substitute toasted slivered almonds for peanuts, and be sure to taste the dressing for seasoning because as they say: "Some Like it Hot!"

My Paleo Marin Rating: 3 Persimmons*

Note: My local Asian Market carries green papayas, Thai basil and dried shrimp; everything else was at Whole Foods.

*My Paleo Marin Rating between 1-5 Persimmons
I try out these recipes so you don't have to (and modify them for Paleo where possible). The rating will reflect my opinion of the final result in terms of taste, ease of preparation, nutrition, and sometimes, cost.
