Ingredients

  • 12 ounces farfalle pasta
  • 2 large mangos ripe, see notes
  • 2 large avocados ripe but firm
  • 2 cups celery chopped
  • 2 cups red grapes sliced
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken cubed
  • 3/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds chopped

Creamy Lime Dressing

  • 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise full fat
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons dried terragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Boil pasta according to package directions. Drain and place into a large mixing bowl.
  • Meanwhile, chop mangos, avocados, grapes, celery, onion and cooked chicken and set aside.
  • In a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid, shake together all dressing ingredients.
  • Once pasta is cooked, mix the dressing into the pasta until it is well-coated. Add remaining ingredients except for the almonds and chill in the fridge immediately.
  • Chill for 4 to 6 hours. Mix the salad, then top it with toasted almonds before serving.

Notes

My favorite mangos are the Ataulfo mangos (or honey mangos) from Costco or Sprouts Market. They have the best flavor.
