This exotic variation of chicken salad is the perfect summer meal. It's filling, cool, crunchy, and delicious.
The mango adds a fresh sweetness and lime juice provides a subtle tartness. Seasoned with turmeric and cayenne, this salad is slightly spicy. It's made with low-fat yogurt instead of mayonnaise so it's FitSugar friendly.
