The most amazing avocado dressing brings to life the classic combination of prawns and watercress. The cauliflower makes this dish a filling dinner that will make everyone wanting seconds.
First make Avocado Dressing: Place avocado, buttermilk, garlic, lime juice, 1 portion of spring onion, Tabasco, salt and pepper and 1/3 cup water into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If you want a thinner consistency for the dressing add a little more water.
Steam Cauliflower for about 10 minutes or until just tender but still a little crunchy. Once cooked to your liking, take away from heat and let the cauliflower cool completely, and chop roughly.
Toss cauliflower, prawns, remaining spring onions, watercress and lettuce together in a bowl. Portion into four plates and drizzle over Avocado Dressing.
