Super Easy Mango, Chicken and Avocado Salad Recipe

Healthy and Tropical

Ever tried mango in a salad? One of my Mum’s go-to starter recipes is a mango, shrimp and avocado salad with lime, coriander, and chilli flakes. It’s fresh, tropical and so delicious! When Florette Salad got in touch for a collaboration, I immediately knew that I wanted to do something a little unusual. Although Florette have plenty of recipes for summer salads on their website, I did my own thing and chose to use mango as my special ingredient. I was inspired by my Mum’s recipe, but used some tasty chicken instead of shrimps and spiced it with cumin instead of chilli.

Mango, Chicken and Avocado Salad

You will need:

  • Chicken breast
  • One ripe avocado
  • One ripe mango
  • A bunch of spring onions
  • Half a lime
  • A handful of salad
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil
  • A tablespoon of honey
  • Cumin

The great thing about this salad is that you can use leftover chicken or even leave out the chicken altogether. If you’re cooking your own chicken, I recommend spicing it with some cuminΒ as this adds a bit of a Mexican taste to it which is perfect combined with sweet mango. I’m a big fan of spring onions, so I chopped some up and added them to the pan with the chicken, sprinkled the lot with cumin and added a pinch of salt.

Once the chicken is ready, cut up your avocado and mango, then get them in a salad bowl with the juice of half a lime. Add your chicken, cooled down and cut into pieces, and your salad leaves. Finally, add a spoonful of honey and drizzle on some olive oil – done. I told you this was super easy!

This recipe has even been approved by the picky boyfriend, so it must be good! I know I’ll be making it again as it’s so quick and easy and makes a nice change from my usual go-to Greek salad. Do let me know if you try it!

What’s your favourite summer salad?

    I love avocado and chicken so much so this sounds very appealing to me. You also get a good blend of fats, carbs and protein from this meal so it is super beneficial πŸ™‚
