Recipe | "Chicken Mango Avocado Salad" by Sue Ready


Cook's Notes: A light healthy salad to beat the heat.The combination of sweet, savory and tangy ingredients make this a refreshing and memorable summer salad and the honey vinaigrette couldn’t be easier! I used a combination of torn baby spinach leaves mixed with 2 cups from a bag of chopped salad mixture that included kale to add more nutrients. Chopped mango and creamy avocado pieces elevated this chicken salad to a whole new level. Grilling the chicken and making the dressing early in the day before serving is a time saver. The honey vinaigrette dressing is enough for 4 salads. Recipe adapted from  natashahaskitchen.com and is a Cheesecake Factory copycat recipe.
