  • Preparation: 10 mins
  • Cooking: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 3 tbsp Heinz salad cream lemon & black pepper
  • 4 tbsp natural yoghurt
  • Zest of a lemon
  • Heinz fiery chilli twisted ketchup, to taste
  • 2-3 large gem lettuce heads, quartered and washed
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced
  • 1/2 small cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 punnet of salad cress, cut
  • 200g smoked salmon, cut into strips
  • 150g cooked and peeled prawns

What you do:

  1. Place the eggs into a saucepan and cover with water and bring to the boil and simmer for 8 minutes, 10 minutes if you like the yolk completely set. Drain, cool under cold running water, peel and halve.

  5. Finish with the strips of smoked salmon and prawns, and spoon over the dressing before scattering over the spring onions, and serve.
