There are a couple of combinations that are absolutely perfect together. Chicken and mango is one of those golden combo’s. In this chicken mango salad it is easy, delicious with just a hint of sweetness.

The first time I made this salad was way back in 2009. I just quickly checked. The one you find here is the improved and re-done chicken mango salad. I don’t always make a lot of recipes again and again but this is such a classic that it is easy to make. So I have eaten a lot of this salad in the 15 years since the first time. I hardly ever repeat it exactly the same. Depending on what I have in the fridge this is a salad that is very easy to vary.

What goes into the chicken mango salad

In terms of ingredients you obviously need chicken and mango. I sometimes use ready sliced mango, making it even quicker. The chicken you could use smoked chicken or bake your own. The smoked chicken is definitely faster to do but both are equally delicious. If using the smoked chicken, you don’t need to add pepper and salt to the chicken.

Apart from those two obvious ingredients you need sun-dried tomatoes, spring onions, gherkins and arugula. I have this love for gherkins. I think they add so much flavor to any kind of salad really, but if you’re not a fan, feel free to leave it out.

For the dressing I used my favorite condiment of all time: mayonnaise. I mix that with mustard, honey, lemon juice and a little bit of salt and pepper where needed. And that’s the dressing done. Lately I’ve been in love with crispy chili oil too, so sometimes I add a little bit of that into the dressing as well.
