This may just be the best salad I have ever had. I am not a huge salad lover, and I devoured this. I love the combination of the chicken, with the juiciness of the fruit, the creaminess of the balanced dressing, and the crunch from the nuts! The only change I made was using cantaloupe because I’m not a fan of mango, and cashews instead of pistachio because I had them on hand. I cannot recommend this enough!
