Summer Salad with mango and grilled chicken!

The weather has been so lovely in Shanghai recently! Nice, warm, sunny days….

We have got a 3 day holiday in China, so I have finally got some time to relax and concentrate more on my cooking. I have got a bunch of consulting requests from a few restaurants in town so I’m all into analysing their menus and try to come up with original and tasty food ideas. On top of that I have to get things ready for Saturday market on Jiashan road.

It will be my first time taking part at the Amelia’s market, so Im quite excited and curiose. I will be selling homemade fresh pasta, lasagna and gnocchi, homemade pasta sauces and my super bomb brioche bread!

Today for lunch I made myself this tasty, fresh summer salad! I loved it! It has got a nice sweet flavor from the mango, a bit of crunchiness from the pine nuts together with tasty grilled chicken breast and healthy avocado!

Ingredients (2 servings):

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 small mango
  • green salad mix
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar

Start by grilling the chicken breast! Cut it in half, oil a bit the grill and cook it on both sides. Remember to season it with some salt.

Remove from the pan

and cut it into small pieces

Slice up the mango

cut the avocado into cubes

wash and cut in half the cherry tomatoes

put the green mix salad on a plate

add the tomatoes, avocado

and mango

Toss around and serve!

Enjoy this delicious Summer Salad!
