Ingredients

For the Grilled Chicken

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 6 Chicken Thighs skinless and boneless
  • ½ cup Mango Cilantro Dressing

For the Salad

  • 5 cups Lettuce roughly chopped
  • 2 Cucumbers diced
  • 1 Bell Pepper sliced thinly
  • 1 Ripe Avocado sliced or cubed
  • ½ cup Cilantro roughly chopped
  • ½ cup Mango Cilantro Salad Dressing

Instructions

  • Start by marinating the chicken in half a cup of mango cilantro salad dressing. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Add olive oil to a grill pan, and cook the chicken for 15 minutes, turning halfway. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  • To assemble the salad, add lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, avocado, cilantro and grilled chicken to a large bowl. Pour the dressing on top and toss to combine. Serve immediately or the salad will get soggy.

Notes

  • Here's the recipe for the mango cilantro dressing from my last post
  • We feel half a cup of dressing for this salad size is enough, but feel free to adjust the amount of dressing to your liking
  • If the dressing is too thick, add a tablespoon or two of water and shake to thin it out before adding it to the salad
  • If serving the salad later, add the dressing just before serving or the salad will become soggy
