1 French shallot, finely diced
3 sprigs of thyme, finely chopped
1-2 tsp maple syrup

Method

Using a small, sharp knife, cut in between the membrane of the grapefruit to remove the segments and place them in a bowl.

Squeeze the juice from the remaining grapefruit into a small bowl or jug and whisk in the Dijon mustard, vinegar, shallot, thyme, maple syrup, ginger and salt and pepper to taste until combined. Whisking continuously, pour in the olive oil and mix until emulsified. Set aside.

Squeeze all the liquid out of the baby spinach then roughly chop. In a large serving bowl, layer the snow pea tendrils, watercress, spinach, avocado, cucumber, celery, the chopped herbs, asparagus, pepitas and finally the prawns.

Top with the grapefruit segments then pour over the dressing just before serving. Toss together at the table.
