Done for the Food Geometry Challenge. It's impossible not to think of citrus fruits for this challenge. Make a classic lemonade and add a colorful tropical fruit for flavor, or as a fun garnish. Don't forget to add some mint!
When I was still living in Beirut, I regularly had lunch with my grandmother in her neighbourhood Thai restaurant. We never failed to order the pomelo salad for starters, a great favourite. Eventually the restaurant relocated and, for some reason, dropped the salad from their menu. My grandmother was still thinking longingly of it several years on, so I recreated it as far as I could remember, using ingredients easy to find locally. It was a hit!
Any that is left over will keep a few days while getting even tastier as it marinates further. Make sure to return to room temperature before eating, to fully enjoy the flavours.
Drinking tea is a tradition as much as a favorite past time in Morocco. It is customary to offer mint tea to every guest as a sign of their hospitality. Mint tea is not only refreshing but also good for the body as it is known to relieve stomach problems as well as heartburn in addition to green tea, which is high in antioxidants that lower the risk of cancer.
Super Food Entry.
I dedicate this submission to my father, Farmer Gene, who loved both growing vegetables and opera. He never lost his inner twelve year old and looked forward to a great guffaw over a pun...the cornier, the better!
Much to my chagrin, and beyond my mortal ability to use denial to cancel it out, I'm a delicate flower when it comes to food and have allergies that render me blank, fatigued, and bed-ridden. This state of functioning is contra-indicated to writing and art-making so when I find a life giving, brain refreshing, delicious recipe such as this one, it is just nice.
So in honor of impending Spring, here's a recipe for a salad I just gathered and devoured, that is delicious AND healthy. Because I know some of you are delicate flowers too. Enjoy!
