Cucumber pomelo salad with tuna fish
Everybody has his very favorite salads. Some people like traditional salads, other prefer to experiment and create strange, but interesting stuff.
Speaking about favorite salads, here is one of my top of the top! Seriously. This is my favorite salad. The second one is the pomegranate carrot spinach salad. But this is the first one. The mix of pomelo, tuna fish, cucumber and iceberg (or green salad) has an unbelievable taste. Actually the original recipe for this salad includes also corn. What you could also add to it is black olives. Trust me, you won’t regret!
This is one of the salads that seem to be a little bit weird. If you serve it to your guests, maybe some of them will look kind of skeptical. It is just because the salad is so interesting. Nothing traditional, it goes beyond the “normal” ideas for salad. Everybody knows that cabbage goes great with carrots. Everybody knows that tomatoes go great with cucumbers. Everybody knows that green salad goes great with eggs. But who would guess that pomelo and tuna fish would be such a great couple? And it is not just them. All the ingredients of this cucumber pomelo salad with tuna fish are an important part of the recipe. And I would also highly recommend you try out the version with the corn and black olives. Everyone deserves to taste something so good!
Maybe you are asking yourself, could you replace the tuna fish with some other kind of meat: salmon, chicken? Well, you could and you will get also a nice result. Pomelo matches almost all kinds of meat (just like the orange, plum, apple). BUT the original recipe is with tuna fish, because this combination is absolutely unique and perfect.
Now take a look at the recipe of this salad. You could “play” with the ingredient’s amount. Maybe you are a big fan of pomelo? Ok, great! Then chop some more of it into the salad! Don’t be afraid it will get to “fruity”. If that is the way you like, what should you be afraid of? 🙂 Or maybe you want the salad to be lighter, because you are on a diet…(oh, no, again? :)). Then just focus on the cucumber.
What I am trying to say is: make the salad the way you like it. I am giving you the basics, the idea, the inspiration. You are the one in the kitchen and the one, who is eating it at the end! I already made mine!
So, enjoy this amazing cucumber pomelo salad with tuna fish!
