Thai Pomelo Salad
This classic Thai recipe is courtesy of Talde in Brooklyn, New York. The sweetness of the Pomelo (Chinese grapefruit) coupled with the chiles, mint, and crunchy peanuts makes for a savory, and refreshing salad.

2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
4 pomelos, peeled and supreme (segmented), juices reserved
2 fresh red Thai chiles, stemmed and finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 cup trimmed watercress
1⁄3 cup roughly chopped peanuts, lightly toasted
20 mint leaves
Whisk the fish sauce, lime, and pomelo juices, chiles, garlic, and 1⁄4 cup water in a large bowl.
Fold in the Pomelo, Watercress, Peanuts, and Mint.
Divide evenly between four to six plates
