2 tbsp agave nectar
1 small chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 small green papaya, peeled, deseeded and thinly julienned

1 carrot-size piece of daikon radish, thinly julienned
15g fresh ginger, thinly julienned
Sea salt

For the wraps
50g raw almonds, chopped
1 tbsp nut oil
Sea salt
1 head of lettuce
1 avocado, sliced

A handful of basil

Whisk together the soy sauce, mirin, lime juice, sesame oil, agave and chopped chilli. Add the julienned veg to the bowl, sprinkle with salt and toss to combine. Let the salad sit for at least 30 minutes. Drain before using.
