Prawns, Kumatoes and Pasta Salad

January 20, 2010

I was fascinated with Kumatoes when I first saw them in the market. We love all kinds of tomatoes (with the exception of Mr H Jr!!)... cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes and now kumatoes...
Kumatoes ~ a new breed of tomatoes, with its deep brownish red almost black in colour... originated from Galapagos. Apart from its intense's an aphrodisiac....hmm...before anyone goes out and buy crates of kumatoes ... ehem... hold your horses, mate and please read on....
Its a natural aphrodisiac for giant tortoises!!! :)
So be quick... I think kumatoes are in seasons during summer months only... the giant tortoises need their 'boost' too!!!
  • 400g dried pasta - cooked as per packet instruction
  • 1 kg of cooked prawns - shelled an deveined
  • 1 punnet of kumatoes - halves
  • green salad
  • 2 cloves of garlic - crushed
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
Mix all in a bottle and shake well.

Pour the dressing onto the pasta and mix well. Add a salad bowl..season with salt and pepper.
