Pomelo, Radish and Spinach Salad
Author:admin  Add Time2009-4-10  News CategoryNews Industry  

The pomelo is thought to be the ancestor of today's grapefruit. If pomelos are not in season, substitute ruby red grapefruit.

The fruit symbolizes abundance in Chinese New Year celebrations because the Chinese word for pomelo sounds like the word for 'to have.' Chinese New Year will be celebrated beginning Feb. 18. 2007 is the Year of the Pig (Boar).

1/4 cup pine nuts
1 pomelo, segmented
2 1/2 cups packed baby spinach
3 red radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
2 tablespoons thinly sliced crystallized ginger
For the dressing:

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
3/4 teaspoon chile garlic sauce
To make the dressing: Combine all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to blend. Set aside

In a small frying pan, toast the pine nuts over medium heat, shaking the pan frequently, until lightly browned, for 3-4 minutes. Pour onto a plate and let cool.

In a large bowl, combine the pomelo segments, spinach, radishes, water chestnuts, onion, crystallized ginger and pine nuts. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well and serve.

Makes 4 servings.
