Mango/grapefruit Salad for All Seasons

Mango/Grapefruit Salad For All Seasons

Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi

On our UP Area 1 e-group, ages ago, we had been exchanging recipes.  Bong Daza vaguely cited a salad of grapefruit and mango which he tossed together with a bagoong dressing.  I was fearful that the bagoong's perfume would not go well with my Western guests' palates, so I kept the grapefruit/mango combination and added my own touches of taste and color with the red onion, pomegranate grains, chives and above all the kaffir lime leaves.

2-3 unripe mangoes, the greenest and the hardest you can find4-5 grapefruits.  I chose those whose flesh have different "colours".1 red onion, sliced thinly.1 pomegranate. Open to get the grains.Chives. Chopped.1-2 fresh kaffir lime leaves. Cut as thinly as possible with scissors.


Cut up the mangoes into cubes or preferably in sexier losanges (diamond-cut).

Peel the grapefruits and extract the flesh from the wedges, keeping them as intact as possible.

Slice the grapefruits then add the diced mangoes.  Mix in the sliced red onions and the pomegranate grains.  Add the chopped chives and kaffir lime leaves, mixing them just before serving.

The fruits may be prepared ahead and kept refrigerated.  Chives & lime leaves are always added at the last minute.

This recipe requires no cooking, no complicated culinary technique, contains no oils associated often with salads, is also gluten-free.  The salad can be seasoned with rock salt, lemon-flavoured falksalt or the susyal fleur de sel.
