Kumara, Orange and Pomelo Salad

If you've ever been in an asian greengrocers and seen a fruit that looks like a gigantic green grapefruit and you wondered what it was and what you would do with it if you bought it, it's called a pomelo and the following recipe makes the most delicious salad. This salad is a Julia B original and serves around six to eight people. The serving plate is from Nigella Lawson's "classic" range of kitchenware.

Kumara, Orange & Pomelo Salad

1 large golden kumara
1 large white kumara
1 bag of baby spinach
1 red onion
1 orange
1 lemon
1 pomelo
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of paprika
1 teaspoon of turmeric
Salt and pepper

Pre heat your oven to 160C.
Peel and cut the kumara into 2-3 cm square chunks. In a roasting dish toss the kumara chunks in olive oil, cumin, paprika, turmeric and salt and pepper. Roast the kumara, turning occasionally until soft and golden (around 45 minutes).
Peel and halve the onion and cut it finely into half rounds. Place the onion in a small bowl and squeeze over the juice of the lemon, set aside and toss occasionally.
Peel the pomelo with a sharp knife, removing all the thick pith and exposing the segments inside. Cut the segments from the pomelo one by one making sure all the pith and membrane is left behind. Place the pieces in a bowl, do the same thing with the orange and place in the same bowl.
Squeeze the juice from the remaining desegmented pomelo and orange over the orange and pomelo segments.
Rinse spinach and place half of it on a serving platter and the rest in the bowl with the orange and pomelo segments. Add the onion and kumara, toss together and serve on spinach.
