I have had several requests recently for recipes containing avocado (you know who you are, and your continued support of my blogging is appreciated!!). In an attempt to appease that request, a recipe just for you.
While on a road trip to play UCLA, one of our team meals included this wonderful combination of sweet and savory. Who would have thought avocado and mango is a match made in heaven?
WARNING: if you decide to make this (which you should) there will be no leftovers. It is that good.
2-3 Cooked, cubed chicken breast
2 Mangoes, peeled, seeded, cubed
2 Avocados, peeled, pitted, cubed
1/3 cup lime juice
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
Salt, to taste
1. Combine all ingredients and chill before serving (at least an hour).
2. Serve over lettuce or alone.
**you can add a little onion if you would like a little extra zip. The onion-free edition is my sister-in-law-friendly version.
To take this delicious salad on the go I may try it in a whole wheat pita pocket. I am definitely making it again in the near future. Give it a try. I promise you won’t regret it.
