Mango, Chicken & Rice Salad/Wrap
Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a recipe that a dear friend made for us when we visited her in beautiful West Virginia. I'm envious of the amazing view she has of the Appalachians right from her doorstep.
I used the base ideas of the recipe and changed it up a bit. It's perfectly refreshing and satisfying. Not to mention it's super easy. You can fix the ingredients ahead of time and put them all together when you're ready to eat. Don't be afraid to use ingredients you and your family love. If you don't like Goat Cheese use a cheese you do like. If you don't like Mango try apple. The possibilities are endless. I will say that in the past I've been hesitant of fruit with savory flavors but it really works well together and is delicious.
Here's the original recipe, click the picture to print it out.
For my version of the recipe I used no tomatoes because I couldn't find any that were good and fresh. Instead of using rice I used garlic flavored Couscous. I love Couscous! I also whipped up my own balsamic dressing with just vinegar, dried herbs, salt, pepper and some olive oil.
