This Thai-inspired salad makes use of the papayas that grow throughout Hawaii. This version is tossed with tender, sweet pea shoots. Make an extra batch of the vinaigrette to keep on hand in the refrigerator—use it as a marinade for vegetables, a flavorful dressing for fresh melon or as a sauce to splash over grilled fish or chicken.

Make Ahead Tip: The vinaigrette (Step 1) will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
1/4 teaspoon  freshly grated lime zest
1/4 cup  lime juice
2 tablespoons  finely chopped palm sugar or packed brown sugar (see Tip)
2 tablespoons  fish sauce
Hawaiian chiles or any fresh hot chiles minced, to taste
3 cups  matchstick-cut or julienned green papaya (see Tip)
1/2 cup  very thinly sliced Maui or other sweet onion
1/2 cup  pea shoots cut into 3-inch pieces, or bean sprouts
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Tip: Palm sugar is an unrefined sweetener similar in flavor to brown sugar. Green papaya is underripe papaya that is green and firm. Look for it in Asian markets. If you can't find one, a ripe papaya will still taste delicious in this salad.
