Thai Papaya Salad / Som Tom Salad

Thai papaya salad is prepared with raw papaya and is also called as Som Tom  or Som Tam Salad . The recipe was shared by my good friend Suphala Shenoy and was tried by most of our friends .I personally loved this salad .The crushed peanuts and the dressing gives an extra punch to the dish . The preparation is very simple and the taste is too good. Goes well with the main course .
