Shaking up salads!

prawn saladSalads are often presented as boring, healthy options which must be endured rather than enjoyed. During the summer months I love to put together a mouthwatering meal with as many fresh and colourful salad ingredients as I can afford. I find the more variety the better, especially when it comes to contrasting textures and flavours. Pictured above is a prawn salad with grated carrot, red onion, cherry tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, sun blushed tomatoes and toasted pumpkin seeds. Compare this to a lunch box sandwich – which one would you prefer?!

Once cooked serve with crunchy lettuce, a drizzle of honey or agave nectar and add some nuts or seeds for added healthy fats. I’m getting hungry writing this!

Are you guys enjoying salads?
