Thai Green Papaya Salad

It was a perfect green papaya that came from the market. The snow outside kept it intact for a couple of day before I ventured to make this tangy uplifting salad. This salad is usually a staple at Thai restaurants but making it at home could not be easier. I have adjusted to make it lower in calories and healthier.
