My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Chicken Mango Chopped Salad

I know its Sunday and I should be posting Saint and Scriptures Sunday, but I wasn't very together yesterday. This is pretty heavenly.

Do you love mangoes as much as I do! I would have to say it really is my favorite fruit. I found this recipe in a magazine a few years ago and have loved it. Since I tore the page out of the magazine I'm not really sure, but I think it was Coastal Living. Of course there have been a few changes because that's what we do.

about 4 servings
print recipe

1/4 cup good mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
3 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken, white and dark meat is best
4 cups chopped Napa cabbage
2 cups peeled, pitted and chopped mango
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 English cucumber, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped red onion

Whisk together the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl.

Combine chicken and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing, tossing to coat. Serve immediately.
