Recipe: Green Papaya (a.k.a. Kohlrabi) Salad

Green Papaya (a.k.a. Kohlrabi) Salad

Combine for salad dressing:
3 TB brown sugar
3 TB light soy sauce
2 TB fish sauce
2-3 TB sweet Thai Chili (I used that thai red curry paste and red pepper paste-just something to give it heat-could use hot sauce)

2-3 kohlrabi (cut the leaves off, peel the outter hard layer off-lucky if you still have last week's rohlrabi)
6 cloves garlic
unsalted peanuts
tomatoes for garnish

1. Peel and grate ( I used cuisinart) to grate/shread the kohlrabis
2. Chop finely 6 cloves of garlic
3. Mix in bowl; add salad dressing and check seasoning
4. Toast peanuts and crush them; serve on the side to be drizzled on top of salad. Garnish with tomatoes...
