Recipe Notes

  • If you want your mango chicken salad to have that sour kick, feel free to use green mangoes instead.
  • Spinach will be a nice alternative to the salad greens.
  • Using red onions will add that strong, smoky flavor. Adding basil instead of cilantros will do the same trick.
  • You can definitely use turkey instead of chicken for this dish.
