this magnificent life

This wonderfully colourful salad is painted with all the colours of spring. It is very easy to prepare, and perfect for an entree or a light lunch.

The edible flowers although not essential to the salad, look oh so pretty and add a slight peppery taste.

Serves 6

2 avocados, firm and ripe

2 pink (ruby red) grapefruit, peeled and in segments with membrane removed

18 spears asparagus, ends trimmed

18 large green prawns, heads and track removed. Leave tail on

2 small hot red chillies

4 limes + juice of 1 extra lime

1 tbs soy sauce

2 tbs extra virgin olive oil and a little extra for cooking the prawns and asparagus

freshly ground pepper

Some edible flowers if you can find them

Firstly, preheat a chargrill or barbecue. Toss the prawns and the asparagus in a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Peel the avocados and cut crossways into 7mm slices – place in bowl and immediately squeeze the juice of 1 lime over them. Add the grapefruit segments and the 2 chillies finely sliced with seeds removed. Grill the prawns and asparagus until just cooked, the asparagus should be slightly crunchy. Place in bowl with grapefruit, avocado and chillies. Add the soy sauce, olive oil and juice of extra lime and season with pepper. Toss gently and divide between 6 bowls.

Sprinkle with edible flowers (if using) and serve with half a lime wedge for some extra zing.
