Chicken Salad with Creamy Mango and Macadamia Nut Dressing

After a heavy dinner on Sunday night, the only think I fancied eating yesterday was a fresh and tasty salad. My Aunt had made me a salad a few weeks ago using a mango mayonnaise with Thai spices it was so delicious was like a coronation chicken but better. I had also been watching Jamie Oliver on TV earlier in the day and he had made a salad by blitzing up cashew nuts to make a creamy dressing, well we had macadamia nuts in the cupboard so I used these. So both my Aunt and Jamie inspired me with this salad which was created with ingredients we had in…most where from the garden too………..ready steady COOK…………
