Green Papaya Salad

Green Papaya Salad

Beth Bollinger of Nest Wellness
Green Papaya salad is a classic Thai salad that I love. This is my take on this traditional salad, loaded with lots of veggies and with all the flavor of the original. This salad can be made with the traditional green papaya or with a variety of shredded veggies.
