You’ve made it to Friday! And today we’d like to share a delicious Thai dish with you: Papaya Salad, or Som Tam in Thai. I discovered this dish while traveling Southeast Asia and staying on the Thai island of Koh Phangan. It’s fresh, spicy, savory, and all-around amazing!
I have to give credit here to Chef Tummy, with whom I took a cooking class while on Koh Phangan. It was at that cooking class that I discovered this amazing salad, and even learned how to make it! If you’re ever on Koh Phangan, I suggest you check it out!
Here’s a link to a video of Chef Tummy making Som Tam. It’s a bit long, but definitely worth it if you’d like to make this. Enjoy!
