Tips

  • Always peel the prawns yourself. They taste fresher.
  • Leave the skin on the cucumber to make sure you get all the fibre in this recipe. Fibre is an important micronutrient used by the gastrointestinal system to aid digestion. Most of the fibre in fruit and vegetables is found in the skin.
  • Taste the sauce before drizzling over salad, adding more ingredients if required to your specific taste.
  • Use red cabbage to give this salad a vibrant look. Red cabbage also has more fibre than white cabbage so this substitute will make the recipe higher in fibre.
  • Take care when preparing raw prawns as they can cause food poisoning if they come into contact with raw foods like salad.
