Mango Ginger Chicken Salad

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

From our skinny table to yours...

For us eating fresh, light and healthy foods go hand in hand with the oh-so lovely summer months!  Is there anything better than fresh mango in the summer?  We are obsessed and put together a super light and refreshing Thai (ish) dish we know you will LOVE :)

Not only is this super yummy, this is also super easy to toss together.  We began with organic ground chicken and seasoned it up on the stovetop with fresh lime juice, ginger, mint (summer obsession) and garlic in coconut oil.  Let us just say this was a DELISH combo of flavors!
We piled our Thai chicken over a bed of fresh mango, cucumber and yellow pepper.  We topped it all with our orange vinaigrette and sesame seeds and called it a day ;)

This one is quickly becoming a staple in our homes and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do :)
