Matty's Mango Chicken Salad

My younger brother Matt served this delicious salad up the other night - it delighted our taste buds so much that I just had to share the recipe.

Ingredients (serves 4):
  • 1/2 chinese cabbage shredded finely
  • One large grated carrot
  • 2 tablespoons roasted pinenuts and peanuts
  • 1/2 punnet grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful of freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 dollop of light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of basil pesto
  • 1/2 roast chicken (cut into smallish pieces)
  • 1 mango (cut into small pieces)
  • Dollop of guacamole (or fresh avocado) for the top
All you do is mix everything in a bowl and add the guacamole (or fresh avocado) on top.  And then let your taste buds do the rest! We hope you enjoy the tastes and textures as much as we did.
