Shredding Green Papaya
A Green Papaya Salad tastes better when the papaya is shredded the traditional way...using a knife only. Use this method also to shred green mangos for the green mango salad.
Above the page, do a Google search for "papaya shredder" if you would like to purchase a papaya shredder in order to save time and possibly your fingers.
This Thai & Lao Food video will show you the traditional way. All you need is a knife and good hand-eye coordination.
In my opinion, if a Thai / Lao restaurant serves me a Green Papaya Salad that is uniformly shredded, then it means that the restaurant is using a papaya shredder. Therefore, the restaurant cannot be serving authentic Thai / Lao food.
