Ah, spring and summer. It’s the time of year when I want to eat salad for (almost) every meal. I hate being stuck in the kitchen over a hot stove, so this chicken, mango and jalapeno salad is a great solution. It’s filling, flavorful and incredibly delicious. Chicken, mango and jalapeno salad is also the perfect salad to make when you have leftover chicken. Dice it up, toss it together with fresh veggies and mango, and then drizzle on a sweet-and-spicy dressing. The sweet. The spicy. The delicious blend of fresh flavors. That’s what you get with this very colorful recipe. It’s like a party on your plate. If you like your dressing with more heat, then add more jalapeño, which I always seem to do! Otherwise, this recipe offers a nice balance of sweet and spicy with each bite. It’s the perfect complement to fresh veggies, mango and chicken.
Today is ALL about Paleo for performance and flavoring responsibly. Foods designed to fuel your athletic performance have an ugly reputation for being either chock FULL of scary, non-food ingredients or they’re bland, monotonous, uninspired, etc. Now, back to this scrumptious mango and jalapeno dressing. This recipe is straight out of Steph Gaudreau’s new book and I have to admit that while I knew it’d be delicious, I was totally surprised by HOW delicious it turned out. It’s got just a little sweet from the mango (I used frozen), some balanced heat from the jalapeno (leave out the seeds if you’re sensitive to spice), and some awesome zest from the lime juice + fish sauce. I was amazed and immediately started dunking everything in site in its green goodness. Cool and spicy, this mango and jalapeno dressing is great over fish tacos or chicken tostadas. Brush on prawns and pineapple kabobs, or grilled fish, chicken or pork. Toss into a jicama, avocado and red onion salad. Dip corn chips or sour dough bread.
