Mock Green Papaya Salad
Because green papayas can be hard to find even in Asian grocery stores, this twist on a traditional Thai recipe calls for tart green apples instead. Sambal oelek, a chili paste from Southeast Asia, can be found with the hot sauces in many supermarkets or ordered online.
1. Toss grated apples with 2 Tbs. lime juice in large bowl to keep from browning. Stir in green onions.
2. Whisk together remaining lime juice, garlic, soy sauce, and chili paste in small bowl. Add to grated apples, and toss to combine. Stir in cherry tomatoes, and serve over watercress.
