Prawn Yogurt Salad

I tend to go overboard when buying ingredients. I bought more than enough prawns for Nasi Lemak with Prawn Sambal. Anyway, I cleaned up the balance and stored them in the fridge. Within the same week, we had a small "do-do" and the timing seem perfect for this prawn salad with vegetables and yoghurt dressing.  

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
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt for taste

Blanch prawns with ginger paste.
When cool down, slice into two pieces.
Combine all ingredients for the sauce and whisk until smooth.
Add prawns, capsicum, zucchini, cabbage, spring onion and salt for taste.
Toss together and served on a bowl lined with salad leaves.
