I've made this six odd times. It's always a favourite with friends and family. It can take some time to chop everything, but it's a pretty easy recipe and it's great as a summer dish.

I thought this would be a good midweek dinner dish but when I came to make it and read the recipe properly, it wasn't cooked so didn't fancy it much. However, as I had all the ingredients I cut the carrots into small pieces and stir fried them with the chilli and spring onions then added the prawns, dressing, mint and cashews to heat up for a few minutes then mixed in cooked medium noodles. Was okay but wouldn't bother again.
