    I've made this several times now... first exactly as called for in the recipe, then with personal tweaks. Now it's one of our staple meals! I always cook the chicken first with seasonings, garlic, sweet onion, and sometimes a red pepper. Also we prefer spinach over lettuce, to which I add a handful of chopped, fresh cilantro and sometimes green onions. The dressing is stellar. Once I made the chicken extra spicy, and added 2 Tablespoons of plain yogurt and 1 Tablespoon of mango chutney to the dressing to balance the flavors, which was also really, really good.  -  15 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Mango and avacado is a wonderful combo and the dressing is beautiful. I think I'd even make it again to use as a dressing for any type of salad or as a sauce for chicken. I did use spinach instead of lettuce and found that to be very tasty.  -  30 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great flavor, nice colors, this dish was unusual, and everyone seemed to like it. Filling yet light, and used as a main dish. The lime juice gave it a nice tartness, but was balanced with the brown sugar. I used chicken tenderloins cooked & lightly seasoned just before making the salad, and added 1/2 c of shredded carrots just because I wanted extra veggies in it. Really good, I'd make it again.  -  03 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
