¼ tsp freshly grated lime zest¼ cup palm sugar2 Tbsp finely chopped palm sugar or packed brown sugar (see Tip)2 Tbsp Hawaiian chile peppers Hawaiian chilies or any fresh hot chilies minced, to taste3 cup matchstick-cut or julienned green papaya (see Tip)½ cup very thinly sliced Maui or other sweet onion½ cup pea shoots cut into 3-inch pieces, or bean sprouts


1. Whisk lime zest, lime juice, sugar, fish sauce and chilies in a large bowl.

2. Add papaya, onion and pea shoots (or sprouts) to the vinaigrette; toss to combine. Sprinkle with pepper just before serving.

Tips: Palm sugar is an unrefined sweetener similar in flavor to brown sugar. It's sold in pods or as a paste in Asian markets.

Green papaya is underripe papaya that is green and firm. Look for it in Asian markets. If you can't find one, a ripe papaya will still taste delicious in this salad.
