Method

  1. Stand each orange on a board and cut away the peel and pith with a sharp knife. Cut the oranges into 1cm slices.

  2. Arrange the lettuce on 2 plates. Halve, stone and peel the avocado, then slice. Place the avocado on top of the lettuce leaves and scatter the prawns on top.

  3. Divide the orange slices, onion and coriander leaves between each plate and toss together very lightly. For the dressing, mix the dipping sauce and lime juice together and season with black pepper. Spoon over the salad and serve.

Have used this recipe several times for lunch. Beetroot strips go well with it and gives it a lovely colour. Not a big fan of prawns but the flavours make this really good.

As pretty to look at as it is to eat. We had this for supper tonight since it was too hot to cook. A beautiful combination of colours, flavours and textures. I don't know what would be a suitable substitute for Little Gem lettuce, which we don't have in Canada, so I used a romaine heart and I left out the cilantro, as neither of us is a big fan of that herb. I definitely will make this salad again!
