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

Recipe Ingredients for Captiva shrimp & Chicken Salad

4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat
1 cup mango, diced (see Tip), divided
3/4 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons dark rum
1 teaspoon hot sauce, to taste
3/4 teaspoons mint, chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon garlic, or 1 clove peeled
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh spinach, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch strips
4 ounces shrimp, cooked, peeled (31-35 per pound)

Recipe Directions for Captiva shrimp & Chicken Salad

  1. Place chicken in a small skillet or saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce to low and simmer gently until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and use two forks to shred into bite-size pieces. Chill in a medium bowl in the refrigerator while preparing the rest of the salad.

  2. Place 2 tablespoons mango, lime zest and juice, oil, rum, hot sauce, mint, garlic and salt in a blender or food processor; process until smooth.

  3. Add spinach, shrimp and the remaining mango to the cooked chicken. Add the dressing and toss gently to combine.
