Cold Chicken, Mango and Feta Salsa
Rachel Allen’s Cold Chicken, Mango and Feta SalsaThe divinely sweet and juicy flesh of the mango makes the perfect base for a salsa. The salty feta cheese is a great balance for the sweetness of the mango while the citrus juice brings a much welcome tang. If you like, you can also add some chopped chilli for a little kick. I love to serve this salsa with some pieces of cooked chicken on Nairn’s Rough Oatcakes as it makes for a gorgeous lunchtime treat, or a starter to a meal, and a tasty source of natural energy to keep you feeling full for the rest of the day. Once made, the salsa will keep, covered in the fridge for a few days. This is ideal for entertaining and as a busy mum on the go, its great to keep in the fridge and create a quick snack for guests when required!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
For the salsa
1 small or ½ medium mango, cut in to roughly 1cm dice

a good squeeze of lemon or lime juice

½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped (optional)
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
Salt and pepper
To make the salsa, simply mix all ingredients together and taste for seasoning.

To assemble, simply place one or two pieces of chicken on top of the oatcake then spoon about ½ tbsp. of the salsa on top.
