by Tenina Holder

Another of the Lakeside Joondalup Summer Series recipes. What is more summery than mango and grilled chicken? Not much. You will just love serving this all summer long. It may even make it onto your party hit list! We loved this picture so much, and I have to say, we loved the salad even more! Totally delicious…so crank the barbie, whip up the dressing and you’re practically done. ENJOY a leisurely (delicious) summer evening…
