450g (1lb) strawberries, hulled, halved, larger ones quartered
500g (1lb 2oz) watermelon, peeled, seeds discarded, cut into cubes
¼ cucumber, skin partly peeled away, deseeded, diced
1 little gem lettuce, thickly sliced
180g pack frozen cooked and peeled prawns, defrosted, rinsed with cold water, drained
½ x 60g pack baby kale leaves
50g (2oz) pomegranate seeds
1 lime, grated rind and juice
3 tablespoons avocado oil or light olive oil
½-1 large mild red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped, to taste
Handful fresh mint, finely chopped
Little salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Add all the salad ingredients to a large shallow bowl and gently toss together with two spoons.
- Fork all the dressing ingredients together, drizzle over the salad and serve with warmed flatbreads.
Rather than adding prawns and mint, this salad also tastes great with cubed goats cheese and chopped coriander.
