Green papaya thai salad

We are sharing a recent collaboration with Pescavore seafood. This recipe is by Chef Sarah LaCasse.

This Thai salad – called Som Tum – is not only beautiful, but is delicious with it's crunchy textures, and signature sweet-sour-savory dressing. 

This is a taste bud's dream come true and we used both our Curry Twist Ketchup and Pescavore's Caribbean Jerk Ahi Tuna tidbits to create this truly exotic salad. 

*We love Pescavore's innovative and sustainably caught Tuna jerky and always take some with us when we go hiking or biking.

This recipe serves 6 ( or more for a great appetiser )

What if you can't find green papaya at your local store?

So, we asked around.... and wow!... we got some great answers. 
"This is also a suitable fate for that cantaloupe you opened that was hard as a rock."
"Kohlrabi can also be subbed for the papaya"
"I have made this using a hard, very green mango and it was great."
"I used the stalks of broccoli, julienned them and it turned out perfectly."
