A variation on the traditional Thai salad, Som Tham, this sweet and savory salad is Paleo friendly and Vegetarian! It makes for a light and refreshing side dish.
In a tall container or glass, whisk all ingredients together. Refrigerate 2-3 hours to meld flavors.
On a large platter, arrange lettuce as a sort of bowl.
Using a hand peeler, peel slices of papaya off (or use a mandolin to create julienne slices).
Thinly slice carrots into matchstick sized pieces. Repeat with cucumbers as well to create thin slices.
Thinly slice bell peppers and chop scallions.
Toss vegetables together and lay on top of lettuce.
Pour dressing over the top. Sprinkle with nuts and serve immediately.
