Broccoli and cucumbers are few of those vegetables which look good more in a salad than in any dish or curry. The granular texture of broccoli florets needed something squeezy-juicy soft fruit to be paired with. The local  markets here are flooded with biggest variety of sweet lime/ mausambi now in this season. I googled and found they are called ‘pomelo’ / Citrus maxima.I was told that the good ripe pomelos have a pink interior and taste sweet-sour ( basically citrusy). I grabbed two of them greedily from roadside vendor, and to my dissapointment, they were white when cut. They still tasted good. They were real juicy inside with big fleshy granules, which could be easily seperated. I paired them with the blanched broccoli florets .Some sprinkled pomogranate seeds later, the salad looked all decked up, a loaded bowlful of  antioxidants and vitamins, making way into the reporteire of 30 days 30 salad series on day 23.
