Pomelo Salad with Spicy Thai Dressing

Reading Time: 1 minute

This recipe is inspired by our travels in Thailand where pomelo salads are a very popular menu item. Pomelo is a citrus fruit that is similar to pink grapefruit but much sweeter and slightly crunchy. If you can’t find pomelo you can substitute with grapefruit and add a little extra agave to taste.

Because hot chilies vary so much in their intensity – and everyone’s tolerance to spicy food is different – feel free to adjust the amount to chili to suit your personal preference.
