Spring Salad with Mango, Chicken, Spinach & Cashews

Hello all!!  I hope everyone is having a good start of the week….Aren’t salads just wonderfully delicious!! 🙂 I had a few Mangos in my refrigerator, so I thought it was time to use them in a salad recipe that I make quite often and I wanted to share with you the simplicity of this salad.  I love salads, I can actually say that I love and eat almost all of sorts of salads,  except for Egg salad!  I don’t eat or like boiled eggs. 🙂  I think the last time I ate one is when I was 7 years old, 🙂  but don’t get me wrong I do cook them for recipes that only others eat. hehahhahaha

I had a bit of baked chicken leftover from the other day so I added this into the salad along with spinachhhhh!!!!…Yum, yum a delicious and healthy salad for Brunch, Lunch, Dinner or any time of the day.  I haven’t added any sort of dressing to this because I want each ingredient’s taste to stand out, so I am only adding olive oil and a bit of pepper.  🙂  


1 Mango (peeled, sliced into cubes

4 cups Spinach

1 cup Iceberg Lettuce

1 small Carrot diced

2 cups Romaine Lettuce

1 oven baked Chicken Breast (cubed)


Olive Oil

1/2 cup Cashews 



Peel and chop Mango into cubes.  I have always used a potato peeler to peel off the skin from the Mango because I found that it was much easier for me.


Cut Chicken Breast into small cubes.


Wash Spinach and your salads thoroughly and drain. 


Take a large bowl and start by adding the spinach on the bottom, then continue with a layer of Iceberg, Romaine, Carrots. 


Add in the Mango, Chicken, Olives.  Top with a bit of Rucola and Olive Oil and of course Cashews to get a bit of crunchiness from your salad and or any dressing topping that you like and enjoy this fantastic salad.

  4. I’ve never had a salad with mango in it. Good thing about salads, if you don’t like something you can push it to the side, and there is always someone who does like it :):) Thanks for sharing the recipe Sophie :):)

  5. I love the mixture of sweet mango and salad – sometimes I add some strawberries or peaches, but mango is also perfect. It looks absolutely awesome! 🙂
