  • pinch of chilli powder
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice

Lime Vinaigrette

  • 100ml freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 2 tsp. fresh ginger, chopped
  • 3-4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • salt

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add a pinch of chilli powder and crushed garlic. Add olive oil and lime juice and mix thoroughly to coat the chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, wash the salad greens, pat them dry and cut into smaller pieces. Transfer to a big bowl and add the mango and chilli pepper. Mix well.

For the lime vinaigrette, put all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir them well.

Place the chicken strips on a hot grill pan and cook for 5-6 minutes on both sides. Transfer the chicken into the bowl with salad greens and mango, pour the lime vinaigrette over it and mix to coat. Sprinkle with cashews and serve as a light appetizer or a refreshing main dish with a slice of toasted bread.
