About this recipe: A colourful main dish salad that's sweet and spicy. It has chicken, spicy mango salsa, blue cheese and cranberries all tossed in a wonderful chilli and lime vinaigrette. It's almost too pretty to eat!
I am the submitter of this recipe. It is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I created this the day after a fajita dinner with mango salsa. So the salsa was pre made and the bell peppers were already chopped. So it was only a matter of assembly. It is a great way to use leftovers. It tastes great with leftover rotisserie chicken, fajita chicken or blackened chicken. In Texas there is a chain of grocery stores that makes a great mango salsa and also sells a package of pre-chopped three color peppers that can be used as a short-cut. Either from scratch or using short-cuts the salad is delicious. - 06 Jun 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Pretty darn good recipe. Definitely worth making again. I recommend using Heirloom tomatoes instead of Roma. I also recommend getting the freshest, juiciest mango you can and then, lastly, I recommend using red onion, but I bet green onion works well, too. By the way, in an effort to save fat and calories, I used chicken broth instead of olive oil for the dressing and skipped the sugar, and I didn't miss a thing. - 28 Jun 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, this salad tastes great and is so tropical - but gets 4 stars for being time consuming and expensive to make! I changed a few things up, but kept most ingredients the same. I made the mango salsa as the recipe stated, and cooked the chicken breast with citrus pepper seasoning. Instead of the dressing recipe, I substituted Newman's Own Light Lime vinaigrette. I still mixed up the chipotle spice mixture, but sprinkled a little of it over the top of the salad before pouring on the dressing. Last, I used a head of lettuce and mixed that with Salad Savoy for some crunch, instead of the spinach & coleslaw mix. I only used red bell peppers instead of all 3 colors (because of the cost). It is a pretty impressive dish to serve! - 18 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
