Recipe by Petite Mommy

Seasoned chicken, salad greens, mango, red bell pepper and raspberry vinaigrette make this an excellent choice no matter what your dietary needs. Steps 1, 2 and dicing of veggies can be done the day before and the salad assembled right before serving time. This makes a portable dish for parties!

I've made this one before and it is amazing. Even my hubby, who doesn't like salad, mangos, or spicy food loves it
