Tom Sam Salad

2 Servings


Tom Sam Salad


  • Peel and seed papaya and shred it. Put in a bowl.

  • Crush garlic with a pestle, then add long beans and tomatoes and pound a few times to release juices.

  • Add the chillies and crush lightly to release the heat.

  • In a separate cup dissolve the sugar in the lime juice and fish sauce.

  • Mix all ingredients together now and toss to mix.

  • Serve in a shallow bowl and top with garnish.

  • Remember:

Do not blend but use mortar and pestle for the salad.

Do not add salt, the fish sauce or soy sauce has enough salt.

  • Taste once mixed and add any ingredient to taste ..this one is supposed to be deadly spicy.
