Tropical Chopped Salad recipe


  • 4-6 oz. cooked wild-caught shrimp or chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/3 cup diced ripe mango*
  • 1/4 cup diced ripe avocado*
  • 2/3 cup diced seedless cucumber*
  • 2/3 cup diced red bell pepper*
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced red onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon homemade mayo
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt & ground black pepper, to taste
  • minced fresh cilantro leaves, to taste


  • Place the shrimp, mango, avocado, cucumber, bell pepper, and onion in a bowl. Toss lightly with a rubber scraper to intermingle the ingredients. Go easy so you don’t mush the avocado too much.
  • Add mayo, lime juice, and cumin to the over the veggies, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir gently and let it rest for 5 minutes (if you can wait) to allow the flavors to meld. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • Eat with abandon.
