Zippy Mango Chicken Salad

It's a hit folks!  There is so much goodness packed into this salad and it has a ZIP! This salad makes me relish in the summer nights!  Love this crisp goodness. Dig in!

Ingredients:

Salad

  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 2 handfuls spinach / kale mix
  • 2 mangos
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 red pepper
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1.5 cups corn
  • Cilantro 

Chicken

  • 3 to 4 chicken breasts
  • Spade L Ranch chicken seasoning
  • Olive oil

Dressing

  • Rice vinegar 
  • Caesar dressing
  • BBQ sauce 

Wash and dry greens. Let them sit while you prepare the rest of the salad to “dry” even more. This ensures that you have a crisp salad!

I use frozen corn and place it in a bowl with water. This will help it defrost quickly.

Trim, wash and dry chicken. Rub with a little olive oil and Spade L Ranch poultry seasoning. Grill until cooked — but don’t over cook it.  (Sorry i just really don't like overcooked chicken!)

Dice all veggies. Combine into a large bowl. Rinse black beans and drain. Also drain corn at this time. Be sure your beans and corn are dry and add them into the salad bowl. Then chop your lettuce add and toss. Add cilantro on the top of individual salads or on the top of the big bowl. (For presentation power you can align the veggies in diagonal rows on the top of the lettuce.)

Mix equal parts rice vinegar, caesar dressing and BBQ sauce. Drizzle over your salad and enjoy!
