Mango Avocado Spiced Chicken Salad



It's a salad kind of day. It's very hot, and the last thing I want to do is think about having to turn on the oven, so no oven recipes today.

I took out ribs for Heath to grill so I don't have to cook tonight. I'm loving summer...Heath loves to grill, so he can make dinner every night (and he has for the past week!).

This recipe was supposed to be something quite different, but once I started making it I realized the girl I got it from had used leftover chicken from an enchilada recipe she had made the day before...so I had to improvise.

I just tossed some spices in with my shredded chicken and kept it simple. Click on the link below under the recipe title so see the original. You may prefer to make it her way.

I didn't use dressing since all I had was ranch, and that just sounded awful with this, so I didn't use any. The mango is so sweet and juicy that it was fine. A light non-creamy dressing would probably be good though

Ok guys hope you all had a nice 4th of July! I'm off to go lay out for a bit, until my skin starts to sizzle (so about, 6 minutes maybe?), then fold 47 loads of laundry. Good times.

Have a great weekend!
