About this recipe:Pomelos are in season during Chinese New Year. They taste great eaten out of hand but if you'd like to do something different with them, try this tasty salad. Add some cooked scallops or prawns if you'd like.
In a small frying pan, heat the vegetable oil. Fry the garlic until golden brown and crispy. Drain the garlic chips on paper towels. Reserve the garlic oil.
Peel the pomelo, remove the pith and separate the pulp, reserving the juice. Place in a bowl and set aside.
Thinly slice the lemongrass crosswise and mince into tiny, tiny pieces. Separate the coriander leaves and stalks. Roughly chop the leaves and finely chop the stems. Add to the pomelo.
Add the remaining salad ingredients followed by the fried garlic chips, garlic oil (add as much as you like), fish sauce and lime juice. Toss and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired. Turn onto a serving platter and sprinkle with peanuts. Serve with glutinous rice.
Instead of cabbage, you can also use string beans, cucumbers or carrots in this salad.
