Prawn, Lime and Mango Salad

“This is a delicious, filling salad from the book Taste by Sybil Kapoor. It's supposed to feed 4 as a light lunch but DH and I have had this between us for dinner. Try it - you will love it! BTW, the preparation time is a guesstimate. I can't remember how long it has taken me in the past.”
