A quick and easy lunch

Yesterday, with Mum off work and lunch having to be more than a cheese and crisp sandwich (that really won’t help the diet), we decided to be a little bit more adventurous with the left overs in the fridge.

What we found was actually very simple. There were a few prawns left over from dinner the night before, some avocados getting close to their use by, and a looking-sorry-for-itself lettuce. As always, we had the staples like bread and cheese and eggs but no one wanted anything using them. This was when we had the idea to try a prawn mayonnaise salad.

Cutting the avocados in half and removing the stone, mum placed a half on each plate. While she did that, I mixed 3 table spoons of mayonnaise with a generous helping of tomato purée until it turned a nice pink colour before adding a splash of tabasco sauce. We then chopped up the prawns and mixed them through the mayonnaise before serving it on top of the avocado. To finish it off, a few chopped cherry tomatoes, a couple of slices of cucumber and some lettuce for a bit of a crunch. Et voilà! A perfectly simple lunch for anyone wanting something quick and easy.
What you need (serves 3)

  • 3 avocados
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise (light if you wish)
  • Approx 1 tablespoon tomato purée (can use ketchup)
  • A splash of Tabasco sauce
  • 100g cooked prawns chopped
  • 6 cherry tomatoes chopped
  • Cucumber for garnishing
  • Lettuce for garnishing

Method

  • Mix the mayonnaise, tomato purée, Tabasco sauce and prawns in a bowl
  • Cut the avocados in half and remove stones
  • Spoon some of the prawn mayonnaise onto the halves of avocado
  • Garnish with tomatoes, cucumber and lettuce
  • Serve with a spoon!

  
So there you have it, a quick and easy lunch for anyone wanting to try something new.

Enjoy!
