Easy Pomelo Salad


Pomelo is one of our family’s favorite fruits.

It is a fabulous version of a large grapefruit that is very common in Thailand. It can be eaten in many ways but the most common ways are to eat it just as a fruit or make a salad with it.

I find that Pomelo is quite abundantly available in the fall season here in New York. I see it everywhere from the local Asian supermarkets to Costco.

This is a really simple salad I make with Pomelo.
