Prawn And Avocado Salad

Sharing is caring!

Prawn and Avocado Salad is a tasty, healthy quick meal and just perfect for a hot day. A quick weeknight meal that’s healthy and delicious! 

Mmmm this recipe is just a delicious burst of summer on a plate.

Our Prawn & Avocado Salad is super quick to make.

We use fresh salad greens and whip up a healthy salad dressing using natural yogurt instead of calorific mayonnaise. 

Just toss some salad greens onto the plates – we buy the bags of ready washed salad for speed. Add on some sliced avocado and top with the citrus yogurt dressed prawns.

I finish with a sprinkle of sea salt and a good squeeze of lime juice and a handful of chopped coriander and that’s it!

Super simple and super tasty!
