Thai Green Papaya Salad aka "Som Tam"
Depending on what part of Thailand you are at you'll find a different recipe for Som Tam. Some recipes call for seafood or fish and some have more spice than others. This is our take at Herbal Papaya. This green papaya salad, also known as "som tam", is popular the world over, and when you taste the flavors it you'll know why. The slightly tart flavor of the green papaya combines wonderfully with the spice of red chili and the saltiness of fish sauce and the sweetness of honey (note that it can also be made vegetarian/vegan - see recipe). Green papaya salad is a wonderfully unique and flavor-filled dish that will make a great entrance to any meal or as a meal in itself. It's also easy to make, low-calorie, and very nutritious. So try this Som tam recipe for today.Read More

Congratulations to NavaYah for Winning our Recipe Contest ... Winner of a 2 month supply of Herbal Papaya Products!!!
Thanks so much to all those who submitted recipes. They were wonderful! It was fun choosing from all the delicious recipes. Next time we'll have to add a twist into the mix!
Winning Recipe: Eye Pleasing, Great tasting Tropical Fruit Salad With Papaya. Submiteed by: NavaYaH
Eye Pleasing, Great tasting Tropical Fruit Salad
1/2 cup ripe fresh papaya chunks
1 ripe mango
1 ripe banana
1 Strawberry Pear [also know in the Asian stores as Dragon Head Fruit] chunks
2 ripe peaches chunked [peelings on]
All chunks about 3/4-1 inch square or so. The colors are all so vivid together. Your guests will not want to resist. When you peel off the brilliant red skin off the Strawberry Pear, the surprising white flesh with tiny black seeds [similar looking to a kiwi inside] are a real surprise and brightens up the whole dish. If you cannot find a Strawberry Pear, substitute 2 peeled kiwis chunked.
Best made in season so all the fruits are ripe and sweet. No need for sweetener!
Otherwise, you might add a bit of raw blue agave.
