Spanish Pomelo Salad (Copa De Pomelo)

“Adapted from a Spanish Salad "Cookbook". Although the pomelo is native to Asia this recipe uses typical Spanish ingredients. Namely, yogurt (Mediterranean) and mayonnaise (French influence) since this country borders both regions. The pomelo is similar to a grapefruit, but without any of the bitterness. In fact, a tangelo is a cross between a tangerine and a pomelo. The US is now the largest producer of pomelos in the world.”
