Serves 4

 

Spicy vinaigrette

50 ml ClemenGold juice – see salad ingredients

80 ml extra-virgin olive oil

5 ml (1 tsp.) honey

1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

a handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped

a handful of fresh mint, finely chopped

2.5 ml (½ tsp.) ground cumin

salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

ClemenGold salad

500 g cleaned, cooked prawns – reserve 4 whole prawns with tails and chop the rest

1 baby fennel bulb, finely chopped

1 small red onion, finely chopped

1 small yellow pepper, deseeded and finely chopped

1 cucumber, finely diced

2 ClemenGold, segmented and roughly chopped – reserve the juice for the vinaigrette

2 avocados, peeled and halved with pips removed

 

  • In a small bowl or jug, whisk the ClemenGold juice, olive oil, honey, chilli, herbs and spices for the vinaigrette; season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and set aside.
  • Use a sharp knife to remove a thin slice from the rounded bottom of each avocado half to stabilise them. Place one half – cut side down, on every plate.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix all the chopped salad ingredients and scoop into the four avocado halves.
  • Garnish each salad with a whole prawn; drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve immediately with extra black pepper.

 

Tip:

You can also present this salad on a serving platter, but then finely slice the salad ingredients instead of chopping them; leave the ClemenGold segments and the prawns whole and cube the avocados to include. Serve on a bed of baby spinach and wild rocket.
