Pomelo Salad

This is a very delicious salad recipe I picked  from a friend . Pomelo is a citrus fruit from South and  South East Asia. More sweet than sour, with juicy meat and pulp, Pomelos have 0% fat and 72 calories per cup/190 grams. Most notable, pomelos are loaded with antioxidants that are believed to help slow down the aging process and protect against some diseases – including heart disease and cancer – as they help rid the body of free radicals.

Pomelos are available at most Asian or Latin American markets throughout the year. Choose firm, heavy fruits.
