Prawn and avocado salad

This prawn and avocado salad recipe is so fresh and vibrant that I leave the table feeling like a new plant reaching up towards thespring sunlight in spring. I sometimes have this for late brunch, which sounds a bit weird I know but makes me happy. You need plenty of fresh herbs and lots of dressing and seasoning, as with all salads.

Ingredients

  • Couple of handfuls of chopped lettuce or mixed leaves
  • a handful of fresh herbs; I used basil, mint and oregano
  • half a pepper, sliced thinly
  • 2in of cucumber, chopped
  • a few large stuffed green olives
  • a hass avocado, skinned and sliced
  • 2-3 spears of blanched Tenderstem broccoli
  • a quarter of a small red onion, thinly sliced (optional)
  • a handful of cooked prawns
  • a good glug of extra virgin olive oil
  • a tablespoon of white balsamic or white wine vinegar 
  • sea salt to taste

Instructions

Toss all the salad/veg ingredients, except the avocado, in a large bowl with the oil, vinegar and salt. Test for flavour and add a bit more oil, vinegar or salt if needed. Now lay the slices of avocado on top and tuck some in in various places. To finish, s scatter the prawns over the top.
