My Newest Favorite

I love summer salads. I love combining unique things together into a delicious dinner salad. JM doesn't like "funky" salads. He thinks salad should ONLY contain lettuce and veggies. I disagree. I enjoy fruit and nuts in my salad to liven it up a bit.

So when I found this recipe for Spicy Honey Chicken Salad, I was excited to try it. It's made with spicy chicken, mango, avocado, and lettuce. We grilled up the chicken and ate it for dinner a few nights ago. Last night I put together the salad and WOW. Let. Me. Tell. You. This salad is AMAZING. I find that the dressing typically makes any salad and this one is no exception. The Honey Citrus Vinaigrette is easy to make and a wonderful compliment to the chicken. The mango adds a bright splash of color and a delicious fruity flavor. I may have licked my plate after. If you are looking for a tasty summer chicken salad, be sure and try this one.

*Finally, the picture loads! It only took a whole extra day.

Thanks a lot. I'd never heard of Our Best Bites, and I officially spent hours looking at recipes there today, neglecting my kids and my house! I want to try all of their recipes! Actually, I'm hosting a dinner party this weekend and was planning on making a different chicken salad, but I think I will make this one instead. It actually goes better with the party theme anyway. Thanks for sharing!

It sounds fantastic! I'm not a fan of fruit in a salad either, but I love putting in almonds or sunflower seeds.

Carlos is weird like that too. He says that fruit doesn't belong in salad or on pizza. But he loves mango - so we'll give it a try.
