Prawn and Avocado Salad

What to do with extra avo

I have an abundance of avocados at that moment; they are in season here in New Zealand, which means I can’t resist picking up a bag every time I head to the supermarket. The warmer weather means I get a few ripe avocados at a time and need to do something with it. While I love guacamole and never say no to smashed avo on toast, I have to put a meal on the table that is more of a balanced meal.

Quick and easy meal

I cooked up a batch of garlic prawns the other day and had a large enough portion left to feed the family. I grabbed my perfectly ripe avocado and threw together this tasty salad in less than 20 minutes. No cooking, just chopping and mixing; if you want to save on washing up, you can even use your salad bowl to put it all together.
