This is another recipe, inspired by my recent trip to Thailand. While I was in Bangkok, I would eat pomelo salad whenever I had the chance.

Tabouleh is one of my all-time favorite foods! When we still lived in Zurich, we would go from time to time with a group of friends to one of our favorite restaurants, Le Cèdre (always in groups, because mezze is more fun to eat in groups as you can share more different kinds!) – and they would serve…
