Chicken Mango Salad with Pistachios

Mangos seem to have become standard fare at Christmas for us. We put them in stockings and enjoy the smell and taste every opportunity we can. Here is a great way to combine them in the actual meal….. you don’t even need to wait for desert for your mango fix.


1 x BBQ chicken cooled

1 x Soft curly lettuce

1 x ripe mango

1 x handful of snow peas

1 x avocado

1 x handful shelled pistachios


Wash lettuce and break up into half leaf pieces

Pull chicken apart, (discard bones and skin and stuffing) break meat into slithers

Slice Mango and Avocado thinly

Wash snow peas

Combine all of the above ingredients in a salad bowl and toss pistachios  on top.

If you MUST have a dressing (although because of the mango it is moist enough) try combining 1 tbsp mustard, 1/4 cup white wine vinegar,  1/2 cup olive oil, salt and pepper in a jar and shake.

Presto…. the yummiest Christmas salad…. perfect for an Aussie Christmas

Now I need to tag some people. I’m going to tag Ali, Cathy, Steph and Sarah
