A Fresh and Healthy Thai Style Salad with a delicious slightly sweet and salty combination.

  • Prep Time :
    10 min
  • Ready Time :
    10 min



  • 1 Cup Unsalted Peanuts Chopped and Dy Roasted
  • 1 Peeled and grated Jicama
  • 1/2 Papaya Peeled/Seeded and grated
  • 3 Carrots Washed and Grated
  • Sesame Oil To Taste
  • A Pinch Of Salt
  • A squirt of Lime Juice


A quick salad to throw together to serve alone or to accomany another dish. This salad tastes excellent without the dressing I suggest served with my recipe for Gluten Free Peach-Curry Marinated Chicken with Coconut & Panko Crust.

I have a food processor with a blade that shreds for me- so this salad took me maybe 10 minutes to make. A good old fashioned grater will also do the job! This makes a big bowl- it will serve 4-6.

I recommend dressing the salad in your own bowl as I noticed everyone tends to like theirs a little different.

  1. Grate the Jicama, Papaya and Carrots. Absorb their excess liquid with a few papertowels and place into a large bowl.
  2. Chop peanuts and dry roast them in a pan for several minutes over medium heat until fragrant and slightly golden.
  3. Add to the Salad The Sesame Oil, Salt, Lime Juice and top with Peanuts.  (adjust flavors to your liking)
  4. Serve Chilled.

Hi lena! You should be able to now. I was experiencing some Linky Tool Difficulties. But all is resolved now :)

this salad will be a perfect remedy to the spring fever we are experiencing here in Houston! :)

Spring fever- can't even begin to tell you how much I am right there with you! Today in Rochester NY it is 50 and sunny. We are in heaven- however it will be snowy and 20 tomorrow.
