  1. Cut lettuce into strips. Tear larger sorrel leaves into pieces. Arrange lettuce and sorrel on serving plates. Cut tomatoes into quarters and add to salad.
  2. To make vinaigrette: whisk oil and lemon juice until combined; add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over lettuce.
  3. To make yoghurt dressing, stir yoghurt, mayonnaise, vermouth and lime juice until creamy. Season well with salt, white pepper and cayenne pepper.
  4. Spoon yogurt dressing onto salads and arrange prawns. Garnish with dill and lemon slices.

cook's tip

In place of dry vermouth in the yoghurt dressing, use 1 teaspoon dry white wine or 1 teaspoon orange juice. Dry vermouth has a slightly "herby" taste and aroma.
