Prawn Yogurt Salad

Not always available, but whenever I get my hands on fresh prawns at the nearby hypermarket, I end up buying more (Grilled Spicy Prawns, Prawn Mango Curry & Prawn Mee). Also, rather difficult to estimate the exact amount needed for a small family like ours. Usually after making a prawn dish (Nasi Lemak Prawn SambalBitter Gourd Prawn Curry & Lemongrass Prawn Petai Sambalthe balance is stored in the fridge. So happened that within the same weekwe had a small gathering at home and the timing seemed perfect for this prawn salad (Thai Mee Hoon Salad & Chicken Feet Salad) - fresh blanched prawns tossed alongside vegetables and yogurt (Grilled Mackerel Yogurt Dip, Potato Rolls Mint Yogurt SauceVegetable Raita, Lamb Yogurt Curry & Moor Kolumbu/Yogurt Curry).  

10-15 medium size prawns – remove skin and de-vein
1 tsp ginger paste
½ red capsicum – cubed
½ zucchini – cubed
3-4 cabbage leaves – shredded
1 stalk spring onion - shredded 
Salad leaves

For the sauce
2 tbsp yogurt
A splash of Tabasco sauce
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
Salt for taste

Quickly blanch prawns in simmering water with ginger paste. 
Drain of the water, cool down prawns and slice into two pieces. 
Combine all ingredients for the sauce and whisk until smooth.
Add prawns, capsicum, zucchini, cabbage, spring onion and salt. 
Toss together and serve in a bowl lined with salad leaves.
