Iceberg wedges with avo and melon

Recipe from: 2/1/2004 12:00:00 AM

Ingredients 12
Servings 4
Time 20 minutes


  • 1
    iceberg lettuce, cut into four wedges
  • 1
    sweet melon, peeled, seeded and sliced very thinly
  • 4
    celery stalks, cut into ribbons
  • 1
    avocado pear, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 8
    green olives, sliced
  • 4
    spring onions, finely chopped
  • 125
    chopped chives
  • 1
    ripe mango, peeled and chopped
  • 250
    low fat natural yoghurt
  • 30
    chopped mint leaves
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


Top the lettuce with the slices of melon, celery curls (see tips), avo and olives.
Blend together all the dressing ingredients and pour over the salad.

Celery curls jazz up a salad or open sandwich. Peel down the length of the stalk using a potato peeler. Leave in iced water for 15 minutes or until they curl.
Cutting the lettuce into wedges is a fancy way to serve it, but if you prefer, you can simply toss all the salad ingredients together.
