Chicken and Pomelo Salad

It may only be the start of Spring but it sure feel like Summer lately. I’m very happy that we barely had a Winter and it looks like we may just skip Spring all together and jump straight to Summer. Bring on the warm weather! Warmer weather means refreshing, vibrant and delicious salads to enjoy, like this pomelo and chicken salad.

During  Winter I may have way too many pomelos thanks to the bountiful pomelos from my parents’ trees. I really love the addition of pomelo in this popular Vietnamese chicken salad. The pomelos really add another dimension to this refreshing salad. There is an amazing burst of juicy pomelos with every bite.
