Crunchy Papaya Salad

in Food

Papaya salad is very common in Asian cuisine. Some are hot and some are sweet and sour. The Filipino  version of papaya salad is sweet and sour but this recipe I have is a mixture of sweet, sour and hot as I have used chilies in preparing it.


2 cups of grated green (unripe) papaya

1 cup grated carrots

1 small onion, cubes

1 lime or 6 pieces calamansi juice

1 small ginger root, grated

2 cloves garlic

2-3 chilies (optional)

2 tablespoon of vegetable oil

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon fish or oyster sauce

1-2 tablespoons raisins

A few dark olives for decoration 

Salt, if needed

Mortar and pestle

Papaya tree in my Philippines garden.


1. Wash the grated papaya and put them in a cheese cloth and squeeze the remaining liquid from it. Then put them in a salad bowl together with grated carrots and raisins.

2. With the use of mortar and pestle,  crush and grind the garlic, chili, onion and grated ginger until it becomes a bit like a paste.

3. Then add the oil, lime or calamansi juice, honey and fish or oyster sauce.

4. Mix the sauce well and you can add more spices to your liking.

5. Then add this sauce to the papaya, carrots and raisins. Mix the salad well.

6. Then add some dark olives in the salad bowl. Put in the fridge for an hour or 2 before serving.

7. Serve as an appetizer or a filling to your sandwich.

BON APPETIT! Thanks for reading.
