    Excellent! I used low sodium soy, cut the sugar in 1/2. Pomelos are very large so ample for 4. I don't know why all the complaints! This was incredibly refreshing and it is easy to reduce sodium content and sugar content without losing the taste. - 3/3/08

    Very Refreshing! For people complaining about the sodium levels, just buy the low sodium soy sauce and omit the 1/4 tsp salt which is what I did and we loved this. Pomelo's are enormous and definitely was enough for 4 as a tasty starter. - 3/3/08

    I used light soy sauce to reduce sodium, used less sugar, ate 2 servings and spread my bowl with ground flaxseed. Loved it! :-)) - 3/3/08

    I don't really like grapefruit, but I often crave it!!?? Maybe my body knows that I need something that it offers. But this sounds like the perfect way to have my grapefruit and eat it too! Thanks for the recipe, and I have to ask, why comment if you didn't try it or don't even want to try it? - 3/14/09

    I used a bit of fish sauce instead of the salt and palm sugar (but less sugar). I also added a bunch of chopped coriander. - 3/9/08

    A pomello is a HUGE fruit, so half of one gives enough for four servings. If you use grapefruit, you would probably need to use about 2 grapefruits to get the same amount of fruit. - 3/3/08

    Wonderful...I love grapefruit and pomelo....Asian food needs the sugar and the soy sauce your body metabolizes soy sauce very easily..however I didn't add the extra table salt..just look at how petite most Asians are....that should give you the clue that this is not an unhealthy salad. - 3/3/08

    This only calls for 2 TBS of brown sugar for heaven's sake! Why all the grumbling-that is 100 cal divided by 4 servings! Worry about something important like the cals in junk food not the 25 from sugar in a serving of this yummy salad!! OK--I'm done venting! LOL - 5/7/09

  • Just use the "Sugar Twin Brown Sugar" in the box, it has no sugar, unlike the Splenda Brown sugar. Problem solved, if you worry about it. You won't die from it in any case, you lived for years using brown sugar before. - 6/6/09
