Papaya steak salad

Did you ever wonder what to do with dried mushrooms? Well here is your chance! They are more fragrant in flavor and will create a meaty and deep flavor to any dish! If you are a cilantro hater, make this anyways and just leave out the cilantro! If you are a cilantro lover, you don't even need to remove the cilantro from its stems, just roughly chop it at the top part and embrace the stems!
