Masala King prawns Salad with cherries
Every year in September just when the kids are back to school we get this last bits of summer here in Ireland and we call it ‘Indian summer’. It’s when Autumn has just begun, you feel the cold in the air and then there is sudden warm days again. We are currently experiencing those beautiful warm days again and I absolutely love it.
The sky is the bluest of blue.. and like my little boy says ‘clear blue skies with little patches of clouds, just the way I like it’ :) and trust me it’s so beautiful.
Keeping the warm weather in mind I have the perfect salad recipe for you. It can be enjoyed warm as well, enjoy it on it own as a light lunch or light dinner or even as a side. I have used the last seasonal cherries for this recipe, but if you can’t find any feel free to use blackberries, which are currently in season or even raspberries.
I made this recipe last summer and forgot about it, then when I was scrolling down my pictures I remembered it again. Fairly simple and easy recipe, with a touch of Indian flavours. Hope you like it.
Let me know if you tried my recipe, please feel free to tag me and use my hashtag #soulfulandhealthy on your lovely creations, so I don't miss them.
Enjoy the very last bit of gorgeous Irish summer! :)
