Mangolicious Dinner Salad with Grilled Chicken



There are some lazy days after work that you just need a refreshing meal that only uses whatever that you have in your refrigerator. I found some semi ripen mangoes, some greens and chicken breasts... Tah Dah!!! I have invented this wonderful flavored salad with tangy lime mustard dressing. It only took me 10-15 minutes to put the meal on the table. Bon appetite!  


Serve 1 person 
Ingredients:
For the Grilled Chicken
1  piece of skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1/2 tsp freshly grind black pepper
1/2 tsp salt or to your taste
1 tsp lime juice
For the Mango Salad
1 semi ripe mango - peeled,  removed seed and cut into bite size.
1 head baby coarse salad
1 tomato - cut into bite size
2 sticks of celeries - thinly sliced
1/4 cup  walnuts - coarsely copped
For the Dressing
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard or horseradish sauce ( I used horseradish that I usually put in my sandwich!)
Juice of 1 lime   


Method:
1) Combine chicken with pepper, salt and lime juice. Put aside and prepare the salad mix in a salad bowl.
2) Combine dressing ingredients and stir well with a spoon until creamy. 
3) Heat large skillet on medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and cook for 3 minutes each side or until brown. Remove chicken from the skillet and place them on the salad.
4) Drizzle dressing on the the salad and its good to eat! 

>> Tips to note : 
Can always replace walnuts with other nuts such as chopped almonds or pecans.
Salad can be prepared up your preference of greens.
