Prawn & grapefruit salad with lime & avocado

Prawn & grapefruit salad with lime & avocado

If you're bored of the usual salad ingredients, this recipe should certainly tickle your tastebuds!

What you need:

  • 300g cooked and peeled tiger prawns
  • 2 pink grapefruit, cut into segments
  • 2 white grapefruit, cut into segments
  • 15g pack fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, stoned and thinly sliced
  • 50g pack wild rocket
  • 2 limes (1 for juice, the other for garnishing)
  • 1 tbsp Virgin Lands Avocado Oil

What you do:

  1. Using a small, sharp knife, slice each prawn in half lengthways through the middle. Toss with the grapefruit segments, dill and some seasoning in a bowl.
  2. Arrange the avocado slices between 4 serving plates, top with the prawn and grapefruit mixture, scatter with the rocket and drizzle with the lime juice and avocado oil.
  3. Serve with slices of lime.

Cook's tip:

This salad also works well with cooked chicken instead of prawns. Replace the dill with a little finely chopped fresh tarragon.
