Jersey Royals Prawn Cocktail with Light Lemon and Dill Dressing


Cook the Jersey Royals in lightly salted boiling water until just tender - about 15 minutes. Drain well and leave until cold. Slice or cut into chunks.

Mix together the soft cheese, yogurt, lemon zest and tomato pickle. Season with a little black pepper.
Arrange the lettuce in 4 attractive serving glasses and top with the Jersey Royals, prawns and dressing. Garnish with lemon zest (is using), then serve.
Tip:  This is an easy recipe to prepare ahead for a special meal - just cook the Jersey Royals, make the dressing, then assemble shortly before serving.
