For the Salad

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the romaine lettuce, bite size pomelo pieces, avocado, slivered almonds, dried cranberries, sliced radish, green onion, and lime zest strips.
  2. Squeeze any remaining juice from the segmented pomelo membrane over the salad.

For the Dressing

  1. Whisk together the lime juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Taste the mixture to make sure it is sweet enough, adding additional sugar 1/2 teaspoon at a time if necessary.
  2. Whisk in the canola oil until completely blended.

To Finish

  1. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.


  • If you can't find limes, leave them out of the salad. Substitute white vinegar in the dressing, adding additional sugar to taste.
  • If you can't find pomelos, substitute sweet pink or red grapefruit.
  • If you can't find purple radishes, substitute traditional red radishes.
