    justcallmetoni's Note:

    A light and refreshing entree salad inspired by a Weight Watchers recipe. But don't let this meal's origin stop you from trying this. If mango is not available, then peaches and peach nectar should also work well. I have presented two ways to prepare the dressing, a simple vinagrette and a warmer version thickened with cornstarch. For those following the Flex Program, the salad is 4 points per serving. For Core folks, the salad is Core plus 1 point for the non-Core dressing.

    Units: US | Metric

    Dressing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stir together all of the ingredients for the dressing. Set aside if you want a cold (thinner) dressing.
    2. 2
      If you want a thicker dressing, place the dressing in a small sauce pan and simmer until it is about to boil. Mix water and cornstarch together into a slurry and add to dressing. Mix until it just begins to thicken.
    3. 3
      Transfer the dressing (warm or cold) into a large bowl.
    4. 4
      Heat broth with ground ginger in a small nonstick skillet. Season chicken to taste with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cover and simmer is cooked through, about 8 minutes per side. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    5. 5
      Clean spinach. Dice the red pepper (if using) into 1/2 inch pieces. If using the red onion, slice very thin into half moon shapes. Peel the cucumber and half lengthwise. Cut into 1/4 inch thick slices. Add all vegetables to the large bowl with dressing and toss to coat. Transfer to serving bowl or plates.
    6. 6
      Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and toss with any dressing left in the bowl. Arrange dressed chicken over the salad.

      I love these flavors! I let my husband build his own salad since I wasn't sure he would go for fruit, spinach, and chicken together, but he loved it. The dressing is wonderful and versatile, too.

      I especially loved the combination of the mangos and spinach. I used an orange pepper and used the directions for the thinner dressing. I think next time I will decrease the amount of curry powder in the dressing as it covered the flavor of the mango juice. Overall a wonderful salad!
