Prawn & Avo Salad, with Ruby Grapefruit


Inspired by a Martha Stewart recipe


1 large ruby grapefruit

1 large ripe Fuertes avocado pear

½ English cucumber, cubed

1 bag salad mixed leaves washed

1 red onion finely sliced

12 grilled butterfly prawns ( Woolworths sweet chili butterfly prawns, to be Cheap Luxury compliant, watch out for specials!)

2 TBS White balsamic vinegar, or white wine vinegar

½ cup Lemon infused olive oil (from Olive Tap at Food Lovers Market)

1 TBS mild mustard

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 grated garlic clove.

  1. Heat the grill and grill prawns for 5 mins
  2. In the salad bowl, place mustard, oil, vinegar, garlic and seasoning
  3. Peel grapefruit with a sharp knife removing all the pith and slice the grapefruit into 1 cm slices then cut slices into 1/8th
  4. Add ingredients to the dressing in the bowl, add lettuce last. Reserve the prawns
  5. Stir it all together with the dressing till well-coated
  6. Garnish with the prawns
  7. Serve immediately

To make a vegetarian version omit the prawns and add cashew nuts and feta.
