17. Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad + Mango Avocado Salsa

“I made this wonderful salad for dinner post-workout. It was so flavorful, and refreshing. I loved the aroma and how colorful everything was. The grilled pepper adds such a hearty kick, and the cumin in the marinade is reminiscent of chimichurri sauce. It was very filling, too. I would totally make this again. I would suggest crunchy tortilla strips as a garnish, but not necessary. Overall this was slammin. I am planning to make some more of these salads in your article. How fun!………” — Charise

18. Southwestern Chicken Salad

“I thought your Honey Mustard Chicken Salad was the queen of the Nile but OMGeeeeeee…..this puts that one to shame.
Not a huge fan of chicken thighs but figured I’d give it a try anyways. Wanted to make exactly and give a fair review. So glad I did. EXCELLENT! I don’t think the breast would be aso juicy or flavorful if I substituted them.
I LOVE your recipes. Only complaint I have is I didn’t find you sooner………” — Patricia
