The salad is made with all things fresh and crunchy. You have fresh romaine lettuce and celery to add crunch and freshness to the salad. Apples and grapes add tang and sweetness to the salad and give it a delicious fruity taste. King prawns are the star of the salad and give the salad the taste of the sea. Also, walnuts are added to give the salad nuttiness and, of course, crunch.

The salad dressing isn’t something unpredictable but rather simple. It is a combination of yogurt, mustard, vinegar, and lemon. So, you know that the dressing is on the sour side of the palette. This dressing goes fairly well with the ingredients and makes the salad tangy and fun. So, without further ado, let’s see how to make Gordon Ramsay’s prawn salad.

What Are The Ingredients Used For Gordon Ramsay’s Prawn Salad?

For The Salad

  • Romaine Lettuce- I believe all good salads are incomplete without lettuce. It is healthy, fulfilling, and gives a great crunch to the salad.
  • Celery- Celery adds the same factors as well. It is healthy, delicious, and gives the salad volume.
  • Apples- Apples bring a beautiful red color to the salad and bring a delicious sweet tanginess to each bite.
  • Grapes- Juicy grapes are quite unexpected but the most welcomed addition to this prawn salad. 
  • King Prawns- Other than being delicious, King prawns are rich in nutrients. But make sure you are using cooked ones. No one likes to eat raw fish unless it’s sushi.
  • Walnuts- Walnuts are brain food and give the salad a certain amount of nuttiness and an unmissable crunch. 

For The Dressing

  • Yogurt- Yogurt makes the dressing creamy and becomes the medium for the other ingredients. 
  • Dijon Mustard- Mustard elevates the taste and distracts the flavor a little bit from the tang.
  • Cider Vinegar- The dressing needs a teensy bit of vinegar to up its sour game and acidic nature.
  • Lemon Juice- Adding to the tang of dressing, you have some lemon juice. It also goes perfectly with the prawns and gives you your dose of vitamin C.
  • Salt and Pepper- It is, of course, necessary to season the dressing as well as the salad.

The salad definitely looks colorful with various vivid colored ingredients. The colorful display also makes it rather appetizing. In terms of taste, you get a strong tang due to the tangy nature of the dressing and notes of mustard as well. The fishy and meaty taste of prawns is prevalent. But what I love the most is the crunch in every bite, whether it’s from the lettuce, celery, apples, or walnuts.
