creamy prawn and macaroni salad

Food has been a struggle lately. I've been fed up with eating the same things over and over, it's been hot, the kids have been fussy. One day last week, I asked Steve what he wanted to eat. "Salad" he said. "I know just the thing, but the kids won't like it"

I showed him the recipe, and then headed out to buy the ingredients. (and the kids ate mac&cheese)

300g macaroni
300g cooked prawns
1 capsicum, chopped
2 celery sticks, finely sliced
1/4c chopped dill
1/2c sour cream
1/3c mayonnaise
2tsp lemon zest
2Tbs lemon juice
few drops Tabasco
1/4c fried shallots

- cook macaroni
- combine pasta, prawns, celery, capsicum, shallots in a bowl
- whisk sour cream, mayonnaise, juice, tabasco and dill together
- pour sauce over pasta mix and combine
- serve with fried shallots and extra zest on top

- we're not fans of celery, I'd leave it out next time
- I didn't have tabasco or fried shallots
- I didn't add all the lemon juice
- we would definitely make this again

  1. What a beautiful dish!!! This just sounds amazing - and so easy too! Thanks for joining Fabulous Foodie Fridays!

  2. Cate I'm glad to hear you have fusspots at your place too.
    I'll have to give this little treasure of yours a whirl for Zadada and I. Mac and cheese for the kidlets sounds like a plan!

  3. I do that too - get sick of eating the same things over and over, then I think of something to make and cross it off because I know the kids wont like it. #FFF
