Looking for a delicious chicken salad sandwich recipe? This Paleo Mango Chicken Salad Sandwich combines mango and avocado into one delicious sandwich!
I thought it would be a good idea to kick the week off with chicken salad. When the weather starts warming up—which it’s supposed to be close to 80° today!!—I start craving all.the.salads. And not just lettuce-based salads. I’m talking chicken salad, egg salad, macaroni salad—I love them all.
I’m a huge fan of my Cottage Cheese Chicken Salad recipe, so I really wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to top it. Sometimes when I’m seeking flavor inspiration, I simply go to the grocery store and browse. I have certain foods and flavors that are safe for me—safe meaning I’m used to working with them and I know the outcome will be successful. Mangoes, on the other hand, were something I’d never cooked with before. So I bought two and booked it out of the store with a dorky smile on my face.
I got home, placed my mango on the counter and just stared at it. Now what? How does one cut a mango??
I’ve praised Google before, and now I’m praising YouTube. Thank you, YouTube, for teaching me how to cut a mango. If you’re wondering, I watched this tutorial which was super short and super simple. Woohoo!
After I got over THAT hurdle. I was in the clear.
This mango chicken salad is flavorful and full of healthy fats and protein aaaaand it’s PALEO for any and all of my Paleo readers. I know it’s not quite summertime, but we’re getting there. This is the perfect dish to take to a family gathering or on that picnic you’re going to force your significant other to go on with you. ….no? Just me?
I’m just excited to get my salad-eating game on from now until September. YAAAS. Hopefully you can also get on board with that.
