Green Papaya Salsa

lumpia and green papaya salad

Green papaya is the same fruit as the orange-fleshed papaya, only picked earlier in the growing process. As a result, it is much firmer and less flavorful. It is popular in Thai cuisine as a textural component to salads as it adds a refreshing, crunchy bite.
