Mango Chicken Salad

I've been dying to post this salad for you all. I've made it a couple times now and just love it. The mangoes this summer have been amazing and I've found some pretty great deals so I've stockpiled a little bit. I've used some for fresh eating and in this salad and the rest I've just cut up and frozen for my green smoothies.

I love the different flavors of this salad that all seem to work so well together and compliment each other. I especially love the dressing, it's like the icing on the cake!

For the salad:
1 head romaine or leaf lettuce, shredded
3 tomatoes, diced
2 mangoes, diced
2-3 chicken breasts, grilled and diced (I seasoned my chicken with Johnny's Garlic Butter seasoning)
Feta cheese, crumbled
sesame seeds

For the dressing:
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 tsp. freshly grated ginger

In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients until combined.

For the salad, mix together the lettuce, tomatoes, mango and chicken. Serve on salad plates and top with crumbled Feta cheese and sesame seeds. Drizzle with dressing.
