Prawn and Avocado Salad with a Spicy Mango Salsa

Bizarrely enough, I found this recipe on the side of the box from a newly purchased bottle of Tabasco. It sounded pretty good so I gave it a whirl in the hand blender of course. It had a real kick to it but we both thought it was very tasty.
Prawn and Avocado Salad
1 packet cooked and peeled king prawns
1 avocado peeled and sliced
Handful of sliced cherry tomatoes
Handful of alfalfa sprouts
Handful of baby spinach leaves
Handful of pumpkin seeds
Spicy Mango Salsa
Half a mango peeled and chopped
A half inch or so of ginger peeled and chopped
Two tablespoons of brown rice vinegar
Freshly squeezed juice of half an orange
A splash of water for a runnier consistency
1 peeled clove of garlic
1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
1 tablespoon of Tabasco hot sauce
Mix all the salsa ingredients together in the hand blender and whizz until creamy. Pour over the salad ingredients and enjoy the Caribbean flavours!
