  1. Finely grate the zest of one lime and squeeze it. Blend the juice with the oil, garlic, sugar, half of the mint leaves in a blender to a smooth dressing. Add the lime zest and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Remove half the core from the lettuce heads with the Salanova® cutter or cut half a circle around the core with a knife: the Salanova One cut, ready principle. Wash and dry the leaves and toss them in a large bowl. Add the rest of the mint leaves, bean sprouts, cucumber, grilled prawns and red chilli and mix well. Drizzle with the dressing. Cut the other lime in wedges and divide over the salad.
