  1. Place sliced red onion in a bowl of cold water (this helps to reduce the pungent flavour and strong aftertaste). Set aside while you prepare the dressing.
  2. In a bowl combine oil, lime juice, salt, brown sugar, soy sauce and chilli flakes. Drain onions and add to bowl with dressing.
  3. Reserve a few fresh herbs and peanuts for garnish. Add grated papaya and carrot, remaining herbs and peanuts to the dressing, stir well to coat
  4. To serve, place salad on a plate, top with remaining mint, basil and nuts.
