    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Originally found this in a chicken cookbook, wish I could remember the name. Changed up the dressing a bit. This makes a lovely entree on a hot summer night.

      Great dressing and the salad was excellent. Can't think of a thing needed to improve it.

      We enjoyed this salad very much! I did omit the lychees though and doubled the complete recipe to serve 5 people, also I did reduce the lemon juice slightly. thanks Toni!...Kitten:)

      Chicken and mangoes and red peppers: YUM! When mangoes are in season, I just cannot resist a recipe such as this. Apart from serving this salad on a bed of baby spinach leaves instead of lettuce and using my favourite creamy - NOT so low-fat - Greek yoghurt, I made this exactly to the recipe. Loved the orange and lemon flavours in the dressing and the dill (I used fresh dill) and the cumin. I served this with kbzhansen’s amazing Deep Fried Garlic Deep Fried Garlic. Thank you for sharing another wonderful low-fat recipe, toni. It's one I'll be making a few more times while mangoes are still looking and tasting so fabulous.
