The arrival of mangoes in the supermarket means I can start making my favourite delicious summertime salad – warm chicken with mango, avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, feta and cashews with a sweet chilli, lemon and soy sauce. I love this super healthy and yummy salad, it’s so fresh and full of flavour. I would love to take credit for creating this dish, but that goes to my gorgeous friend Louise from Baby Steps PT. Thanks for sharing yet another fantastic recipe with us Louise!
