Eating the Alphabet:Mango Tango Chicken Salad with Nectarine Vinaigrette

It's time y'all for another edition of Eating the Alphabet. This month's letters are M, N &/or O. You can find out more about Eating the Alphabet over at Meal Planning Magic hosted by Brenda. 

I just love the letters I get to work with this month! M is for Mango, N is for Nectarine and O is for Onion.

Today I've whipped up a Mango Tango Chicken Salad with Nectarine Vinaigrette for y'all's eating enjoyment.

2 large boneless chicken breasts
1 large ripe mango
1 medium red onion
2 cups fresh spinach
3 nectarines
sea salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon dill
1 cup red wine vinegar

Preheat oven to 300 F. Prepare chicken breasts. Leave skin on and rub with olive oil, place on foil lined baking dish, cook about 30 minutes or until juices run clear. While chicken is cooking prepare mango and onion. Peel mango, cut into bite size pieces. Chop onion into medium pieces, toss with mango, set aside. Rinse spinach and remove any stems and dry with paper towel. Add spinach, mango and onion to serving bowl. Prepare vinaigrette. Peel nectarines, remove pits add to food processor with 1 cup red wine vinegar, salt, pepper and dill, mix until blended. Once chicken is done, remove skin, chop into bite size pieces, add to spinach mixture, toss with vinaigrette.

Enjoy this yummy in your tummy summertime salad y'all!

Sounds yummy! I love finding new ways to use mango besides just eating fresh and cut up. Will have to add this to my list of "to-try"
