Mango Chicken Rice Salad


Brighten up your dull April days with Cellardoor’s colourful and rather tasty spring salad! Slender strips of tender chicken with peanuts, mango and banana and zesty lemon mixed with rice… easy peasy!


Ingredients
170g cooked cold wild rice
200g cooked cold chicken (stripped into chunks)
325g (tinned) sweetcorn
110g salted peanuts
2 bananas (sliced)
1 mango (sliced)

Dressing
1 lemon
4 tbsp oil
Pepper and salt
1 tsp soy sauce
1 small onion (grated)

Method
-       Cook rice as instructed on the packet and drain and cool (put in the fridge once cooled)
-       If the cold chicken is not already pulled into strips, do so, then mix together with the sweetcorn, mango, banana and salted peanuts
-       With a vegetable peeler, pare (peel) half of the outer skin of the lemon and leave aside for garnish; grate the other half and squeeze the juice of the lemon into a small bowl
-       Add the oil, salt and pepper, soy sauce and onion
-       In a large put the cold rice, chicken, sweetcorn, mango, banana, salted peanuts,   and dressing and mix thoroughly
-       Add the peeled lemon on top to pretty up and serve with green leaves and cherry tomatoes for extra colour and flavour
