This is a summer favorite when green papaya and long green beans are in season. It is usually topped with grilled shrimp. It tastes 'cooked', but the cooking is actually bruising the vegetables to soak in the salty, sweet, sour dressing. —edamame2003
Test Kitchen Notes
Without a pok pok, I just put it in a bowl with a tight lid and shook it violently to bruise everything a little bit. I found it on the spicy side, but a lovely mix of salty and sweet. —Stephanie Bourgeois
I work in the entertainment business, and in my free time, I really enjoy growing my own vegetables, trolling my local farmers markets and trying to re-create yummy dishes I eat at my favorite restaurants. My son is a big influence on how and what I cook. He's my guinea pig and promises to try anything I make once. Luckily the recipes on food52 are bountiful and delicious.
