Recipe – Raw Veggie Salad with Garlic Prawns


Whilst trying to go sugar-free, I was on the lookout for really healthy recipes that were tasty. This salad is one that I have made a few times since and always really enjoyed. There is a fair bit of prep and grating involved but it is most definitely worth it for a crunchy, colourful and flavourful meal.



Half a red onion, finely chopped

2 courgettes, grated

2-3 carrots, grated

The juice of one lemon

Salt and pepper

A drizzle of olive oil

One tray of king prawns

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

A handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped

How to make it

  • In a large bowl, add the onion, courgettes and carrots


  • Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the top, season well and mix


  • In a small frying pan, heat the oil and lightly fry the prawns and garlic for a few minutes


  • Tip into the bowl with the salad in, add the coriander and give a final stir


  • Serve immediately!

I’ve also tried adding radishes, fennel, spring onions and cucumber to this and, if you aren’t trying to stick to a sugar-free diet, a drizzle of sweet chili sauce works a treat too!
