Captiva Shrimp & Chicken Salad
Mango--diced and pureed--gives chicken and shrimp a tropical flavor jolt. But don't be upset that the recipe only uses half a mango; that leaves some for tonight's dessert or tomorrow's breakfast (eat it plain or stir it into yogurt). Better yet, blend it into a margarita (virgin or not) to enjoy with your meal.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the dressing (Step 2), cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.
Tip: To dice a mango:
1. Slice both ends off the mango, revealing the long, slender seed inside. Set the fruit upright on a work surface and remove the skin with a sharp knife.
2. With the seed perpendicular to you, slice the fruit from both sides of the seed, yielding two large pieces.
3. Turn the seed parallel to you and slice the two smaller pieces of fruit from each side.
4. Cut the fruit into the desired shape.
