Som Tam Thai: papaya salad

While visiting with my daughters in Indiana, we stayed at an airbnb. The wonderful host was Michael. Besides being a great guy with a very comfortable home, he is also an enthusiastic and experienced home gourmand. Michael volunteered to make dinner on Friday night and we helped. The end result was a bit spicy for the girls. Their pallets are a fresh and young, but they agreed that it was delicious. We also had a Mexican chocolate sorbet base with butternut squash.
