Great salad. I want some of your salad. Yum!
Ridwan, this sounds so yummy! I haven't had too many papayas in my life, but they are really good!

This is my kind of food, the touch of Asian ingredients and oozing with the spiced up taste.

What a beautiful salad!
I love green papaya salad! I make it often. Usually I use long green beans cut up instead of the cucumber, but other than that it is quite similar.

Never had papaya and cucumber together in a salad. Great!

Cheers,
