Make the orange dressing.
Put the mustard, vinegar and orange juice in a bowl and whisk together.
Gradually whisk in the vinaigrette dressing, and stir in the tarragon, spring onion and grated onion and grated orange zest.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place the peppers under a hot grill until blackened all over, turning occasionally.
Put them into a polythene bag of 5 minutes, then peel them and remove any seeds.
Cut the flesh into small confetti-like squares or diamond shapes.
Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil and add the green beans.
Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, until just tender but still slightly crisp.
Remove with a slotted spoon and cool.
Remove the corn kernels from the corn on the cob and add to the boiling water in the pan with the potatoes.
Cook for 3-4 minutes, until just tender, then drain and cool.
If wished, you can use a bowl of iced water to cool all the vegetables quickly.
Mix the drained cooked beans, the sweetcorn and potatoes with the peppers and toss lightly in half of the dressing.
Toss the mixed salad leaves with the remaining dressing and arrange them on 4 serving plates. Top with the shelled prawns and vegetable confetti.
