Guest Post: Chicken, Mango, Avocado and Rice Salad

Hello, Lindsay here.

It’s a pretty well-known fact that I am obsessed with cilantro. This salad combines my favorite herb with both sweet and savory ingredients and makes an awesome, light, summery meal. With just a little bit of chopping, this salad comes together in no time and makes a great lunch to bring to the office!
