Mango & Chicken Rice Salad

Ah, it's almost a month since the last time I blogged!
Kids exams, followed by family holiday, and then post holiday blues haha..
Now, I'm back :)

This salad I am going to share today is very refreshing and very filling at the same time
I enjoyed eating this dish, especially knowing that it's rather healthy, too
Bonus, it's easy to prepare :)

What you need:
(serves 2)

1 cup uncooked rice, cooked as instructed, and cooled (leftover rice is good, I used a mixture of red and white rice)
170g chicken breast, cooked as preferred (I seasoned with salt and pepper then pan fried  and shredded)
110g ripe mangoes, diced
140g Japanese cucumber, diced
1 stalk of spring onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp chopped basil (I used 1 tsp dried basil)
salt and pepper to taste

Dressing:
juice from 1 large lime
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 tbsp honey

Method:
  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients for the dressing, set aside
  2. In a separate large bowl, mix rice, chicken, cucumber, spring onion, basil and mango
  3. Drizzle the dressing over it and toss til evenly mixed
  4. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Best to keep it refrigerated for a few hours til it's chilled before serving
