🌴 THAI WEEK: Check out our #thairecipe for #greenpapayasalad! 
On my recent trip to Thailand I discovered the joys of Thai street food. One of the most common dishes served is a green papaya salad. In every row of food stalls you’ll find a little lady or man making this quick, delicious salad. Because it’s made in an oversized, wooden mortar and pestle, they often stand on a little step stool allowing them to pound and mix comfortably, or failing that, have them propped in specially made cast iron frames.
The Mortar and Pestle comes in so many shapes and sizes, and almost every cuisine has its own version. The most beautiful part of the Thai green papaya salad is watching it being made in the traditional wooden mortar and pestle.
