Made some papaya salad earlier for a friend’s baby shower. 🤰🏻👶🏻⁣ ⁣ ⁣I added long string beans. I didn’t realized how expensive they are at this time of the year— over $4/lb. 😦 You can substitute them with green beans if you can’t find long string beans. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 🌶⁣ #papayasaladlover #papayasalad #papaya #tbt #thaifood #laofood #mienfood #khmerfood #hmongfood #food #foodporn #chrissyteigen #laofoodmovement #hmongkitchen #thummakhoong #lao #thai #hmong #khmer #thailand #laos #cambodia #iumiennetwork #iumien #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #eeeeeats #likeforlikes #dailyfoodfeed #foodporn

BBQ meat and papaya salad make a delicious combo. 🌶😋💦⁣ ⁣ ⁣Why do I love papaya salad so much⁣ ⁣ When I was a child living in the Chiang Kham #refugee camp in Thailand , papaya salad was one of my favorite foods to eat. It was cheap and abundant; it was what I can afford. Whenever my parents can afford to give me a baht , I’d rushed to the farmer’s market that was a few minutes away to buy some. I remember I’d always buy it from this one Hmong lady , because she made it the best — just the way I like it! So , that’s where my love for papaya salad began. Today , I’m thankful that I can make my own to enjoy and to be able to share some with friends and family. Eating papaya salad reminds me of my humble beginnings.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Follow me for delicious papaya salad pics. These are some of my own homemade papaya salad dishes that I made for myself , friends and family.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #papayasaladlover #papayasalad #thaifood #laofood #mienfood #khmerfood #hmongfood #food #foodporn #migrationology #laofoodmovement #hmongkitchen #thummakhoong #lao #thai #hmong #khmer #thailand #laos #cambodia #iumiennetwork #iumien #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #eeeeeats #likeforlikes #asianfoodrecipes #somtam

This platter of papaya salad holds a lot of memories. It’s been over two years ago that I made it for a wonderful friend — it was the last platter of papaya salad that we shared. She’s no longer here. 😞👼 ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #papayasaladlover #papayasalad #papaya #tbt #thaifood #laofood #mienfood #khmerfood #hmongfood #food #foodporn #migrationology #laofoodmovement #hmongkitchen #thummakhoong #lao #thai #hmong #khmer #thailand #laos #cambodia #iumiennetwork #iumien #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #eeeeeats #likeforlikes #dailyfoodfeed #foodporn

Always the best lunch here at my cousin’s restaurant. Spicy thum + piping hot soup are bad combos but it’s so darn good! #lunch #foodporn #foodies #laofood #ninjafoods
