Mangoes and curry. Curry and mangoes. They’re basically a match made in heaven (have you had mango chutney with Indian food before?)
This Mango Curry Chicken Salad is so easy to make and absolutely perfect for making ahead and serving for lunch.

- Sweet, juicy mango chunks that add a burst of flavor.
- Curry flavored greek yogurt dressing for a bold (not spicy) flavor that helps season all the chicken and vegetables.
