Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 and put the bread chunks onto a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tsp of the oil, rub in with your hands, season, then bake for 10 mins until golden and crisp.
  2. While the croûtons bake, cut the peel and pith away from the grapefruit, then cut out the segments, dropping them into the bowl as you go. Squeeze the juice from the heart of one of the grapefruit into a separate smaller bowl.
  3. Peel, stone and slice the avocados and separate the leaves of the lettuce. Add to the segments along with the prawns. Whisk the sweet chilli sauce and remaining 1 tsp oil into the grapefruit juice, then season to taste. Once the croûtons are ready, cool for a few mins, then toss with the rest of the salad. Put onto plates and drizzle with the sweet chilli dressing to serve.

Light and delicious - the sweet chilli sauce adds a very tasty tang. Serves four as a side dish or starter, two as a main course.

I adjusted this recipe slightly, by replacing the chilli sauce with a good drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Seasoning AND replacing the bread/crutons with Roasted Pine Nuts, which works better for my personal taste and it was delicious and now a regular salad on my Spring/Summer menu :)
