Recipe: Green papaya and pineapple salad with shrimp

Recipe Green Papaya and Pineapple Salad

On honeymoon in Vietnam, the food was excellent throughout the trip. However, one dish was particularly memorable. It was a green papaya with pineapple dish at Orivy in Hoi An. Back home I recreated it for a lunch with colleagues, and people loved it. It is an even more tropical spin on a classic Thai spicy green papaya salad. In my book, it is a winner!
