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. 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. And 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.

  1. Absolutely delicious.   Used Mahi Mahi pan fried with garlic instead of chicken as I was eating alone but will try with chicken next for the family.  I also had left over mango salsa with cilantro that made a nice addition to the salad.  The olive and white balsamic made for a perfect light dressing

    1. The chicken is just grilled regular. You can season it however you like. It’s called “California” typically because of the avocado. Over 90% of avocados in the US are grown in California.

      Pick one that has lots of red color, and yields to a soft squeeze. You can buy and let it sit for several days. They sho7ld also have a sweet smell. Good luck. 

  2. Ooh that mango just completed the whole salad!! Looks so fresh and yummy 😉 better go buy some mangos . Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  5. Just made for dinner and so yummy!! I loved the vinaigrette. I would also add a nut next time to give it some crunch, like pecans. Thanks again!!

  6. Just made this and it was absolutely incredible! This is the 8th recipe I've made from your since last Thursday. Love them all. Thank you!

  7. Just curious, the serving size for this delicious recipe only says 1/4th and I was curious as to what the unit was. A cup? Thanks!

  8. Can I use any other vinegar like Red wine vinegar, reg balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar or even just regular vinegar?

  9. Hi there! I'm a loyal follower and doer of your recipes and I'm from Puerto Rico, it's a nice to know you have family over here in my beautiful island 🙂 keep posting yummy goodness

  10. I come from India and during the summer we get a massive variety of mangoes but the sweetest of all is the Alphonso which you rarely get here in the US. Would recommend a good Indian store between April – June to get the Alphonso mangoes and you will never go back to having any other kind… Oh by the way it works great in this Salad too.

  11. I just had this for lunch and it was delicious! I almost left out the mangos because I wasn't sure if I would like them, but I'm glad I didn't. They were the star of the salad for me!

  12. Just made this for dinner – it was awesome. I used white onion instead of red, just personal preference, but it was delicious!
