Caribbean Chicken Salad with Pina Colada Dressing

This is the perfect salad for a light summer dinner and it’s super easy.

6 oz. pina colada yogurt
1 1/2 T. lime juice
1 tspn. Caribbean jerk seasoning

4 cups lettuce (whichever variety you prefer)
6 oz. cooked chicken, cooked, cooled and chopped
15 oz. black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 c. mangoes, fresh, from a jar or frozen and thawed
1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
1/4 c. cashews (optional)

Whisk together dressing ingredients and set aside.

Toss salad ingredients together.

Pour dressing over salad and serve.

Did I change anything? I didn’t put in as many onions. That was just too much onion for us. I also left out the cashews, but will definitely add them in next time.

What did the family think? It was a little too fruity for my hubby. I liked it though and the kids liked it, too. They just picked their way around the beans.
