Mango & Grilled Chicken Salad
We live in the hot South, and this awesome fruity chicken salad is a weeknight standout. I buy salad greens and add veggies for color and crunch. —Sherry Little, Sherwood, Arkansas
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
- 1 pound chicken tenderloins
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 6 cups torn mixed salad greens
- 1/4 cup raspberry or balsamic vinaigrette
- 1 medium mango, peeled and cubed
- 1 cup fresh sugar snap peas, halved lengthwise
- Toss chicken with salt and pepper. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat on each side or until no longer pink, 3-4 minutes. Cut chicken into 1-in. pieces.

Health Tip: Keep those spring colds at bay (or at least shorten their duration) with vitamin C-rich mango.
