"This is a great summer salad. It's really easy to make, and kids love it. I like to stuff the salad into pitas and serve it like that, but it can stand alone as well."

  1. Whisk together lime juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, honey, salt, and pepper until blended. Slowly whisk in olive oil until incorporated. Mix half of this dressing with the chicken breasts, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Refrigerate the remaining dressing for later use.

  3. Grill chicken breasts until no longer pink, about 6 minutes per side. Set aside and allow to cool while proceeding with recipe. Toss together mango, black beans, bell pepper, and jicama in a large bowl with reserved dressing. Slice chicken into bite-sized pieces and toss with salad.
  4. To serve, line a serving bowl with the green leaf lettuce and mound the chicken salad into the middle.

I thought this was way to sweet. I would've liked to eat the mango by itself.

This recipe was really good, but I have to agree with another reviewer. It definitely could use some cilantro, and I added in an extra splash of lime. Avocado would add a nice touch, also. With ...

This was absolutely delicious! I did have to make a few changes, left out the black beans because I was out, omitted garlic (due to a guest allergy) and added a dash of dry mustard to the dress...

I loved this...but felt it needed one more little thing...some thinly sliced purple onion. It added a nice color and great flavor. This one is a keeper.
