Call Me Big Papa
Knowledge Drop | True or False: Despite the misleading name, green papayas are actually not the same fruit as papaya (ya know, the orange tropical fruit).
FALSE! We gotcha there, didn't we? ;)
So, it turns out green papaya is indeed the unripe version of the buttery and juicy papaya fruit we know and love (well, at least we love it!). Green papaya is used in certain Thai cuisines such as a green papaya curry or Thai green papaya salad.
It is a versatile fruit because it doesn't have a strong flavor, making it easy to transform into a refreshing flavorful salad using other key ingredients — in this case, a house-made mango chia vinaigrette. Do you think The Notorious B.I.G. would approve of our herbaceous, protein-packed salad? We think so.
