This is a great salad to have at Chinese New Year as that is when the Pomelo's are in season. Instead of cabbage you could use beans, cucumbers or carrots. To make a complete meal you could add some cooked scallops or prawns.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 small pomelo
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, cut into thin slices
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, using only the tender white core
