By far the best Thai Place in San Diego is Amarin Thai in Hillcrest, and since I can’t eat there every night, I needed a recipe to get in my Thai fix. My favorite thing on their menu is the Papaya Salad. And since I didn’t have any green Papaya lying around my kitchen, I rummaged through my fridge and came up with this mix. I bet it would go amazing with Tom Yum soup!
Oh man…. I feel a craving coming on….
