Citrus, Prawn & Avocado Salad

Overview

 

Serves 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time (if using raw prawns) 5-6 minutes

 

What’s Good About It?

This colourful salad is super healthy and substantial enough for a main meal. Any leftovers will keep in the fridge for lunch the next day. The addition of avocado also provides plenty of healthy monounsaturated fats and vitamin E.

 

 

  1. Make the dressing. Place all the ingredients in a small bowl or a jar and whisk or shake vigorously to combine. This can be kept in the fridge for 3-5 days.
  2. If you are using raw prawns, heat a frying pan with a little oil. Cook the prawns for about 5-6 minutes until pink and cooked through. Sprinkle with a little black pepper and paprika if wished.  Allow the prawns to cool.
  3. Place the salad leaves in a bowl with the remaining vegetables and scatter over the prawns. Season with a little black pepper.
  4. Drizzle over a little of the dressing and toss to coat.
  5. Serve with additional dressing if wished.
