Fish sauce: 1 teaspoon
Sugar: 2 teaspoons
Lemon: 1 lemon
Garlic: 10g

How to make:
Prawns: peel off the hard shell & the black line (poo tube!) on their backs, wash then drain well. Wash Rau ram thorougly; drain well also, then chop finely. Cut red chili into thin small slices. - Coriander: wash; drain.

Dressing: Squeeze lemon for juice. Put fish sauce, sugar, lemon juice, garlic and chili in a large mixing bowl; put 2 spoonfuls of water in, then stir well. Mix green papaya, Vietnamese mint, peanuts and chili together; add coriander and prawns near the top. Pour dressing over the top.

I love green papaya salad so much, especially the cheap ones that we can find on street, that is served with dried beef, and the killing chilly sauce ;-). I tried the Thai papaya salad (not in Thailand though), and still prefer Vnese one.

Remind me of my students day ;-)

Hi, Thanks for your comments, This is a very popular dish in Viet Nam and you can make it at home easily. You can make it with dried beef or somethings else instead of prawns as well. Good luck and enjoy!!!
