Salads don’t have to be boring and this zingy recipe that’s packed full of flavours and delicious ingredients proves just that. So if you’re looking to be healthy and want a really healthy dinner recipe (opens in new tab) that will fill you up, tastes great and is really easy to throw together then give this delicious salad recipe a try this week and you’ll not be disappointed.

In fact, it’s so delicious that you might even want to try it as a lunch option – whether you’re at work or at home it will be a real treat that you’ll look forward to all morning.

Prawns are a really great source of protein that will help fill you up, but they’re also a fabulous source of calcium, potassium, phosphorus as well as vitamins A and E. What’s more, they’re also relatively low in calories, with eight prawns averaging around 101 calories per serving.
