Spinach Mango Salad

As promised, here is another delicious meal you can make with mango!  I really love this one.  The combination of sweet and savory really hits the spot.

1 (10 oz) bag baby spinach
1 1/2 ripe mangos, peeled, pitted, and cubed
1 medium tomato, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
1/3 cup green onions, sliced
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 chicken breast, chopped
freshly ground pepper to taste

Mango Vinaigrette
1/2 mango, peeled, pitted, and pureed
3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
3 tbs white balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp salt

Mango Vinaigrette: Combine mango, extra virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar and salt in a blender container or small food processor; blend until smooth.

Place spinach, mango, tomato walnuts and green onions in a large bowl. Drizzle with Mango Vinaigrette and toss well to coat. Add blue cheese and chicken and toss again very lightly.
Serve immediately with freshly ground pepper.

Vinaigrette may be made several days ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.  My daughter decided this was her new favorite thing to dip everything in.  I'm not sure if she liked the color or the flavor more.
