Quick, Low fat prawn salad (serves two)

A friend said to me recently "I have no time to make healthy dinners that taste good", wrong. Everyone has the time to make a whole array of quick healthy meals. This salad doesn't even require any heat and makes minimal mess! This quick easy recipe is a personal favourite of mine :)

  • 3 Tbs of light mayonnaise
  • 3/4 tbs of tomato puree
  • 3/4 bag of pre-cooked and peeled prawns (defrosted)
  • 6 leaves of Romain lettuce
  • 1 Tomato
  •  5cm chunk of cucumber
  1. Bunch lettuce leaves together and cut into ribbons.
  2. Cut Tomato and cucumber into small cubes.
  3. Mix together the mayonnaise and tomato puree until smooth and the whole mix is the same pink colour - there should be no blobs of tomato puree left unmixed.
  4. Mix together the salad and place on two tea plates, cover with prawns.
  5. Spoon on sauce into the middle of both piles of prawns.
  6. Garnish with a sprinkling of paprika and a lemon twist if desired :)
What did i tell you? Simple :) This salad also makes a great starter, instead of two large servings divide between 6 wine glasses and add a capful (whiskey cap) of whiskey into the dressing.

Next week I'm going to show you how to make a magic lemon pudding - It's as good as it sounds :)

Thanks For Stopping By :)
