Recipe Notes

WINE MATCH: Prosecco or Rosé.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Use a loaf of gluten-free bread warmed in the oven.
INGREDIENT NOTES / SWAPS: If you don’t like prawns, you could swap for a pre-cooked roast chicken or pan fry some chicken tenderloins.
BULK IT UP: For bigger appetites, increase the amount of prawns to 500g (1lb 2oz).
STORING AND REHEATING: Store salads in airtight containers in the fridge, separate to dressing. Salad will only keep for about a day. Leave bread at room temperature.
