Mexican Green Papaya Salad

Recipe by  

"Green papaya is usually found in Asian, Vietnamese, and Thai salads and dishes. I've taken the crisp crunchiness of green papaya and given it a Mexican/Tex-Mex twist! My kids love it when I use a bit less cilantro and chili powder."

I live near all of the ethnic markets listed above and couldn't find a green papaya so I diced up a ripe one. The brown sugar adds a nice touch to a great salad.
