This is a simple and easy salad with healthy food ingredients. It’s very appetizing and refreshing too.
The grapefruit flesh can be replaced by pamelo but I think, it is much easy to obtain grapefruit than pamelo.
It is a salad that tastes more savoury than sweet with the use of fish sauce for the dressing. Basil leaves gives a sweet fragrance to this salad.
