Summer Salad: Chili Lime Prawns with Avocado and Grapefruit

This is a refreshing summery salad. Not only is it healthy and delicious, but I love the way the coral shrimp and pale green leaves look together. I think the tastiest salads always have an interesting combination of flavours and textures. A "salad formula" rather than a recipe, if you will. For example, this salad incorporates:

Sweet: Honey
Sour: Lime juice, grapefruit
Salty: Fish sauce
Bitter: Mixed greens
Creamy: Avocado
Crunchy: Prawns (I'd add cashews or peanuts, if I had them around.)
Heat: Red chili flakes

A perfect light lunch for a hot day in no time at all!
