Chicken Mango Salad

Last weekend I made mango chicken salad courtesy of Everyday Food June 2005. I loved the exotic flavor the coconut added to it and it was quite refreshing for a summer salad. Today I post the recipe and the picture.

Mango Chicken Salad
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut (toasted)
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons Major Grey's Mango Chutney
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
coarse salt and ground pepper to taste
4 cups shredded chicken
1 mango, peeled, seeded and diced
10 ounces baby spinach

1. In a medium bowl, whisk yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, chutney, mustard, turmeric and cayenne; season with salt and pepper. Add chicken and mango; toss.
2. Serve on spinach, sprinkled with toasted coconut.
