Mango Chicken Salad
For the Dressing:
2/3 Cup Mayo
2 Limes, juiced and zested
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
dash Chipotle Chili Powder
For the Salad:
2 Mangoes, peeled and sliced
1 Avocado, diced
1 can (15-oz.) Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 Cup Grilled Corn (from Trader Joe's, or use 1 Cup frozen Corn )
1/4 Cup Diced Red Bell Pepper
1 Cup Chopped Celery
3 Tablespoons Diced Red Onion
1 large Tomato, diced
1 pound Lime-Marinated Grilled Chicken, diced
Chopped Fresh Cilantro
Romaine Lettuce, if desired
Mix together all Dressing ingredients until well combined; store in refrigerator.
Combine all Salad Ingredients and dress with Dressing. If you omit the Lettuce, this will keep nicely in the refrigerator for several days, getting yummier as the dressing and flavors blend. Serves 8-10, depending on how much Lettuce you use and how hungry everyone is.
To make Lime-Marinated Grilled Chicken:
Marinate 1 pound boneless, skinless Chicken breast in the juice of 5 or 6 Limes, 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, 3 Crushed Garlic cloves, and a dash of Chili Powder, Salt, and Black Pepper for one to two hours. Grill until done, or saute in skillet. Cut into bite-sized pieces. I like to do about 3 pounds of Chicken at a time and keep it in the freezer, ready to go.
