Chicken Curry and Mango Salad Recipe

Updated on January 27, 2015

Curry Chicken Salad with Mango Recipe

There is just something about chicken salad that most people love. Fortunately there are many ways to create a unique and tasty salad. Different spices and ingredients totally change the taste of the chicken salad. You can opt for chicken breasts or use dark meat or even both. For this particular salad, my preference is chicken breasts. I generally use dark meat for different chicken dishes.

We both love curry and as you can see if you checked out other recipes of mine I sneak this tasty spice in quite often--not to mention its many virtues. You can make this salad with fresh mangos, but I had some mango cubes in the freezer and thought it was a good time to use them with this recipe. Besides I always have trouble chopping a mango. Why not take the easy route-- I do whenever I can.

The recipe may appear to have a lot of ingredients, but half of them are for the dressing. This salad goes together pretty fast and you can enjoy the leftovers the next day (if there are any).

      I love chicken, and I love mangoes. And if the picture of the bag of frozen mango is from the same store I buy my frozen mangoes from (Trader Joes), than you shop in my favorite store. So of course I am rating this recipe up, useful, awesome, and interesting. Thanks for a great meal!
