Really don't like mint at all so used coriander instead. Delicious low calorie meal which all the family loved. Kids had theirs with rice

Really fresh salad which received lots of compliments. Definitely worth toasting the cashews!

Great way to use up these ingredients, next time I'd probably griddle the prawns alongside the cashew nuts but what a simple yet filling salad. We had this with egg noodles too and a touch of sweet chilli sauce for dinner.
