Traditionally made using green papaya, which can be hard to source in the UK, som tam is a Thai salad that ticks multiple boxes with its salty-sour heat and crunchy layers of texture. Courgetti and tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) make this version vegan, but you could always use fish sauce for a more authentic taste
