Ingredients

  • One green papaya (1 1/2- to 1 3/4-pounds), peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 10 green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 hot chile pepper, stemmed, seeded if desired, and finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts, optional

Directions

Shred the papaya in a food processor.

Put the green beans in a large bowl and bruise them lightly with a wooden spoon. Add the tomatoes, scallions, chile pepper and the papaya.

Stir the fish sauce, brown sugar, lime juice and a pinch of salt together in a small bowl, then add it to the papaya mixture and toss to coat. Toss in the cilantro. Let stand 15 minutes. Toss in the peanuts, if using, right before serving.
