Green Papaya Salad

So every time I’ve eaten green papaya salad, I’ve gotten sick to my stomach. The first time I ate it was when I’d up and decided to make it myself, not long after having discovered the fabulous joys of Vietnamese salads. See, I was at this party, and this dude Chad burbled on to me in glowing terms of the fabulous merits of shredded papaya, and it’s salad-like uses. So I sought out the papaya in all of it’s shredded goodness.

I was so excited that I forgot to rinse it.

I downed a bunch, and ended up missing work the next day due to the viciously uncomfortable swelling my stomach was experiencing. Only lasted a day at least, and kept me from eating green papaya salad again until a year or so later. That next time, however, was from an actual restaurant. Thusly, the weird bloat only lasted a few hours, and was milder.

My problem is that if something is delicious, I’ll still want to eat it no matter how sick it makes me. This also gives insight to why, every year as a child, I was always ill in early November, having free reign on my Halloween candy.

In any case, I made some more green papaya salad last night, it was quite delightful and the best part? Not a bit of sickness.

It really is the sort of salad that you just want to roll around in!

I’d post a recipe, but you can just google it instead, for I am full of lazy!
