    but i love making this salad. if you need protein, a grilled skirt steak sliced super thin against the grain looks and taste great perched on top.

    When I worked at Royal Barge Thai in Phoenix the old lady would make this salad everyday. She never used the mandoline. She would hold the papaya in one hand and with the other she would take a giant Thai Cleaver and whack the papaya about a million times and then shave paper thin noodles away from her. Then all the ingredients would go into a mortar and pestle and she would toss the papaya in. ooooh baby!!!

    yea, i was walking around in thaland and saw a lady about to give a cooking class. she saw me staring in the window and waved me and my wife in. i saw the ingredients laid out, and plopped down money right there and then.

    first thing she taught us was this salad. she did it with a knife too!! i am not that skilled, yet.

    This is the closest in ingredients and concept for that salad I made that night for my father. Different cheese, nut, and apple (goat, pistachio, and fuji). Sometimes I change out jicama for the apple. I have also started to used hulled watermelon seeds instead of nuts. I like how seeds adhere to the lettuce leaves.

    Other things I like to add: tarragon is my favorite herb and pickled mustard seeds give a pop.

    I rarely like any sort of crouton, but lightly sautÚing some cubed bread in oil with paprika is nice for a bit of spice. I even sautÚ the bread cubes in broken down, melted anchovies and oil for caesar salad. My wife doesn't care for anchovies, so this provides one more opportunity to pick our or 'manage' how much anchovies are in her salad.

    All too healthy for me. How about a 'Schweizer Wurstsalad'? Cut something like bologna (or polish sausage etc), Emmental Swiss cheese, onion, pickles into strips somewhere between julienne and batonnet; marinate at least a couple of hours in a vinaigrette that is a bit on the sour side, you can also add a splash of the pickle juice. Best with a fresh rye bread from the brick oven and a fresh beer from the tab.

    That said, I also enjoy a classic salade nicoise, a simple but fresh caprese, or just some endive fresh from my Mom's garden. She makes it with this great sauce that has sour cream in it and she binds it with a mashed boiled potato - sounds weird but one of my favorites. And don't get me started on potato salad...
