I LOVE THIS SALAD. There, I said it and loudly. It is a great BBQ, poolside, beachside crowd pleaser. SO easy that it barely constitutes cooking, more of a serving suggestion really and how good is the Varoma for prawns? (Very good, that’s how good!)

This recipe appears in my first cookbook, For Food’s Sake, my passion project, the one I still love and use to this day. It is like a first child, you love the others, but the first one brings special memories...go get it if you don’t have it already. It really was the first Thermomix cookbook of it’s kind, with great recipes and beautiful pics. (If I say so myself, and there I go again, I said it!!)
