Pomelo Summer Salad

Summer salad can not only cool down your body under the hot weather but also help your body gain enough vitamin C to fight back diseases. What’s more, it is a good recipe for those who are under diet or want to lose weight.

Serving size: 2

Cooking time: 20 minutes

  • 1/2-1 pomelo
  • ½ lb shrimp
  • ​½ lb pork belly
  • 1 purple onion
  • 1 lime
  • 1 oz. peanut
  • Vietnamese basil, or mint
  • Salt, pepper, chilly for more spicy taste
  • Coriander for garnish

Step 1: Cook the shrimp and boil pork belly until tender. Normally, I want to cut the shrimp into half for more servings, but if you think it’s not necessary, it’s completely fine! Also, you need to cut pork belly into slices.

Step 2: Cut the top and bottom and then cut onion in half . Cut into thin slice. Stir-fry the cut onion under high heat in 5 mintues until crisp-tender. Then, put it aside to cool.

Step 3: For mint or basil, you can stack up the mint leaves, roll them lengthwise and slice them across. Or, you can also leave them the way they are for the later mixture.

Step 4: For the whole pomelo, cut it into half, peel off all the white skins, and take out all the flesh. Gently use your hand to break its segment into small chunks.

Step 5: Well mix all the ingredients: the cut shrimp, pork belly, basil, pomelo, lime, crushed peanuts and all the spices based on your taste, altogether in a big bowl.

Step 6: Serve it in a nice plate, put the crispy stir-fried onion and coriander on top to garnish. You can leave out the coriander if you do not like its smell but then, all you can do is to enjoy a delicious refreshing salad dish!

These are such simple recipes that can easily be done within an hour. I have tried and succeeded in impressing my family with these dishes. And I hope you can also surprise yours in cooking food with the fruit you've got from the market.
