Oh wow wow wow....this is the one, my fave thai dish.

Hunt out a pomelo and dont even bother making this dish if you cant find one...theres no substitute in my eyes.

To make the sauce , combine all the sauce ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil, allow to simmer for 10 mins then set aside to cool.

Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl.Then add the sauce , tbsp spoon by tbsp spoon until you have the consistency and taste you prefer.

I served the salad in a hollowed out pomelo half and also tried it as a starter in a large diamond shaped piece of pomelo....looked great but a nice white or glass bowl is fine.
