Remember when I shared my avocado chickpea salad recipe with you? And told you how amazingly delicious it was? Well, I’ve got another avocado salad recipe for you and it is a total game-changer. 

This salad is satisfying. It’s vibrant. It’s packed with nutrients. It’s got plenty of protein to hold you over until the next meal. It’s easy to make. 

It’s amazing. 

This salad combines chicken, avocado, mango, onion, lemon juice, parsley, and dill. It’s the kind of salad you get from a resort on a tropical island. The kind that makes you drool at the sight of it. The kind that gets you thinking about it in the middle of the week on a drab afternoon.

I’m sorry, do I sound a little obsessed?

It’s just because this salad is way too delicious to pass up. It has all the right flavors. And if you want to turn this into a complete meal, you can even use this as a filling for a sandwich. It’s so good squished between two slices of bread.

And guess what? It comes together so easily. The only cooking that’s involved is for the chicken. If you want to skip that step too, you could easily use store-bought rotisserie chicken for this. Everything else is just cut, chopped, and drizzled. 

This avocado, chicken, and mango salad is a wonderful dish for a summer afternoon. Double the batch if you’re expecting guests!
