Pomelos are those fruit that look like melons with grapefruit skin. Asian in origin, they have a very mild citrusy taste and are certainly nowhere near as bitter as grapefruit.

In Thailand, pomelos are used as a salad ingredient and that’s my favourite way to eat them. Here’s my recipe:

  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 limes, juice of
  • 1 stalk finely sliced lemongrass


  1. Peel and segment a large pomelo (this is a bit of work – it can take 15 minutes to do one fruit) and place the pieces in a bowl.

  3. Pour the dressing over the fruit and garnish with fresh coriander.
