Pomelo Salad Recipe (Yum Som-O) ยำส้มโอ – Hot Thai Kitchen!

Pomelo is like a giant, sweet grapefruit. When you get a good pomelo..few things are more refreshing and invigorating to eat! It’s also the perfect candidate for this beautiful, light salad, and I waited a long time to make this recipe cuz I wanted to make sure I am in Thailand where pomelos are the best in the world!

In this video I also show you how to peel a pomelo! It’s a massive fruit so it is intimidating to many people, and tons of Thai people (including me) often buy pre-peeled ones just for convenience. But once you know the trick, it’s really not hard, just takes a bit of time! And FYI, peeled pomelo segments will keep in the fridge for at least a week or 2, so after I peel the whole thing, I just stick them in a well sealed container in the fridge, et voila, ready-to-eat delicious pomelo in the fridge for days!
