A tropical summer salad perfect for the warm weather! Shredded papaya with a chilli lime dressing, toasted coconut and nut mince. Served with crunchy rice paper puffs.
1. Finely chop chilli and crush 1 garlic clove. Combine in a bowl with 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar, lime zest and juice.

2. Use a julienne peeler to julienne papaya and carrots. Halve tomatoes. Deseed and slice cucumber. Trim and halve sugar snap peas. Roughly chop mint leaves. Toss all together with dressing. Season to taste with more soy sauce or sugar if needed. Set aside.

3. Finely chop nuts. Add 1 tbsp oil to frypan. Add nut mince, shredded coconut, 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp water. Cook for 3-4 minutes until toasted and golden. Take off heat.
