Summer is here!
And with the warmer weather coming in hot and strong, what better way to cool off with a zingy but refreshing salad!
The prawn and mango combination is beyond words good in this dish. Perfect to serve as a side, a main or even an entree at your dining room table this silly season.
Why is it good for you?
Not only is it super light on the calorie end, it also provides a range of nutrients to keep your body health and ahppy. This salad is protein packed due to the prawns and spinach, a good source of both vitamin A (hair and skin health) and good old vitamin C thanks to the mango addition, and has a lovely little guilt free good for you dressing!
Serves: Two People
- Two large handfuls of spinach (roughly 3 – 4 cups worth)
- 280gram cocktail prawns
- 1 mango diced
- 1 cup cucumber chopped
- 10 cherry tomatoes halved
- 1/4 Avocado
- 1/2 Tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
- 1 Lime
The reason I love this is recipe is because it is so easy to assemble and serve, be sure to chop your ingrediants in advance to help your prep time when entertaining friends and family!
In a large serving bowl place in your spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, manog and prawns. Be sure to give the salad and good toss, this will allow the falvours of the tomotoes and mangoes to spread evenly and “pre-dress” the salad.
In a small pouring jug, squeeze in your limemaking sure you catch any pips.
Place in the sweet chilli sauce and avocado, and begin to whisk with a fork until smooth and creamy.
And you are done!
This little dish can keep up to 1 – 2 days in the fridge on its own.
I always reccomend to make the dressing fresh to allow for full flavour and freshness!
