Mango Mint Chicken Salad

Regardless of the fact that it snowed here is Salt Lake yesterday (BOO!), spring has officially sprung. I've been excited to start making fresh fruity salads! I went to lunch the other day with a friend to Blue Lemon and ordered their Mango Mint Chicken Salad and I was blown away by the flavor and fresh taste of it. I knew I had to try and duplicate it at home. And BAM. I did, and am so terribly pleased because I plan on making it lots throughout spring and summer.
Here's how (add however much or little of each of the items below as you like! I add lots of all, but I'm cool like that):
- Your favorite lettuce
- Ripe mangoes (chopped)
- Fresh mint leaves (they sell at most grocery stores by the lettuce)
- Feta cheese
- Shredded chicken (I love rotisserie chickens from Whole Foods)
- Avocado
- Onions
Toss all ingredients together and top with this dressing:
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup agave
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
- Fresh lemon juice to taste
- Fresh pepper
Shake well in sealed container
