We probably eat a salad about 3-4 times a week. Whether for lunch or dinner I love them. I don’t mean a simple green salad, I am talking about a loaded salad filled with lots of goodies.
Today it’s a prawn salad filled with lots of homemade croutons, avocado, parmesan and a delicious dressing. You can make the dressing as spicy as you want, I am into very spicy but I kept the dressing mild.
This recipe serves 3
360g tiger prawns
3 heads of little gem, chopped
2 avocados, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 slices of stale bread, torn into pieces
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
For the dressing
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup pickled jalapeño slices (I used store-bought)
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoon grated parmesan
- Add all the ingredients for the dressing to a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste, set aside.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the bread, stir and cook for about 5 minutes until toasted. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Pat the prawns dry and toss with salt, pepper and the cajun seasoning. Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and cook the prawns about 2-3 minutes per side.
- Toss the lettuce with the dressing, divide among plates and top with the prawns, croutons, avocado and loads of parmesan. You can even add extra jalapeño slices if desired. Enjoy!
