California Grilled Chicken Avocado and Mango Salad
Grilled Chicken pairs beautifully with avocados and mangoes in this delicious salad, perfect for those warmer nights you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.
Tropical fruits like mangoes and avocados are my favorite fruits. Paired together in this salad with grilled chicken, it couldn’t be more delicious! More recipes I love with mango are this Pork Tenderloin with Mango Salsa, these Mango Coconut Ice Pops and this Mango Coconut Chia Pudding.
When I was a kid, I spent many summers at my cousin’s house in Puerto Rico and I remember all the mangoes falling off her mango trees, so many it was hard to keep up with them. Back then mangoes weren’t as popular here in the states, but luckily today you can find them in every supermarket.
This salad screams California, which is where it was inspired from! For this salad I used red butter lettuce, but you can use any baby lettuce, especially home grown if you have any in your garden!
For the dressing I kept it real simple, extra virgin olive oil and white balsamic vinegar which is naturally sweet and perfect on this salad.
