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!
