    About this recipe: This salad has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. Spinach leaves, macadamia nuts, dried banana slices and mango are tossed in a fruity salad dressing, then topped with warm prawns, crumbled goats cheese and toasted coconut.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 85ml pineapple juice
    • 3 tablespoons orange juice
    • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 450g cooked large prawns
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 285g baby spinach leaves
    • 1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced
    • 65g chopped macadamia nuts
    • 65g dried banana slices
    • 115g crumbled goat cheese
    • 55g sweetened desiccated coconut, toasted

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Prepare the salad dressing by whisking together the pineapple juice, orange juice and 4 tablespoons olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. Brush the prawns with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. Place the spinach leaves, mango, macadamia nuts and banana chips into a large mixing bowl.
    2. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Heat the prawns in the frying pan on both sides until just warm in the centre, about 1 minute per side.
    3. To assemble the salads, drizzle the spinach mixture with the salad dressing and toss until evenly combined. Divide onto four plates. Divide the warm prawns amongst the plates and top with goat cheese. This way the goat cheese will melt down a little from the warmth of the prawns. Sprinkle with toasted desiccated coconut to serve.

    This was tasty! I did not add the banana chips, but everything else is the same. It made a great dinner on a hot day!  -  24 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This salad was okay. I probably had higher expectations of it than I should have. I love goat cheese and coconut and the combination intrgued me. A salad bite without goat cheese had very little flavor to it.  -  24 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This salad was delicious. It was light, but yet filling. Our guests barely touched the other dishes. I cannot wait to make it again.  -  24 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
