Tropical Chicken, Avocado, & Mango Salad

Today’s recipe is a colorful and very tasty mix of chicken, mango, and avocado in a spicy lime dressing. It’s a hearty, filling summer meal with amazing flavors. Start with a bed of mixed baby lettuce or baby spinach. Mix cooked chicken whether it was grilled, sauteed, or cooked on a rotisserie at the supermarket with avocado and mango. I strongly suggest you make just what you can eat today as it does not store well. Both avocados and mangos should be ripe without being mushy for best results. Top it with the spicy lime dressing and enjoy the mix of flavors.

  1. It is a beautiful salad! very summery. Mangos aren’t very good here, for some reason we don’t seem to get the good ones and they’re very expensive (might have something to do with not living in the tropics do you think LOL!) You are making me homesick for Florida.

  2. I would have never thought of using chicken with these two. It looks very colorful and it sounds so tasty. The only problem is mangos & avacados may not be good around here.

    1. can you get the unripe firm green avocadoes? Place in a paper bag for about 2 or 3 days. Check firmness at 2 and 3 days. If still hard, leave for another day. Take from bag and place in refrigerator. Cut and eat with a little garlic salt and lemon juice. Yum yum!

  3. Your tropical chicken salad looks absolutely delicious with the avocado and mango- Very interesting combination and perfect for summer eating now that mangos are plentiful and ripe.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
