Green Pawpaw Salad

Serves 4


4 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp fish sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
15 green beans
1 green pawpaw
1 carrot, peeled
200g chicken breast
2 tbsp chopped red chilis
Fresh coriander
2 tbsp chopped peanuts


1. Whisk the fresh lime juice, brown sugar, minced garlic and fish sauce together in a bowl and set aside.

2. Cook green beans in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, then drain, rinse with cold water and cut into 5cm pieces.

3. Place the chicken in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for five to seven minutes until cooked through. Slice the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

4. Using a Julienne peeler, peel the pawpaw and carrot to measure roughly six cups and place in a large bowl. Add the green beans, coriander and chopped red chili. Add the dressing and combine. Divide onto plates and garnish with chopped peanuts.
