green papaya salad bento

Hi friends! We've been having fun with different versions of green papaya salad this week--Jamison being very handy with the peeler and julienning piles of supple papaya slices...and I've been experimenting with dressings that vary the proportions of fish sauce, lime, chilies, basil and shallots. Today's bento features a bed of tart-spicy salad topped with peanut and shallot flavored shrimp. Brightly colored and fun rice crackers from Mekong Market, our fav local spot for Vietnamese cooking needs, add their texture to a light and refreshing lunch.
Happy cooking!
