This sweet and creamy dressing was created when Thai mangoes are in season. I thought it will work well with chicken.
Here are the ingredients for the dressing.
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Feel free to adjust the amount of ingredients to your liking.
For this recipe, I am using:
rosemary (1 sprig)
Marinate chicken breast with salt and pepper. I am so used to steaming chicken and carrots with a sprig of rosemary that it has become my second nature. I love how the scent of the herb can infuse into the food like magic. The celery was kept raw to have a crunch in the overall texture of this dish. And the last step is to coat all ingredients evenly with the dressing and serve.
Oh yes, not forgetting a glass of white and perhaps some crusty bread plus more olive oil.
I hope you will like this recipe.

I love the unique flavoring of avocado dressing, thanks for sharing this!
Thanks Pamela, avocado has made the dressing so creamy and taste really good!
Lovely recipe! I wish mango were cheaper in my country. But I suppose 1 will go a long way.
Thank you for stopping by Genie. You are living in a paradise. I have been to New Zealand many years ago and I am longing to visit again. I am thinking you may use mango yoghurt for a replacement instead.
Oh wow! That’s a great looking plate! You have some pretty good food-styling skills. I love the mango-avocado flavour idea.
Thank you so much for the compliment. I’m glad the creamy sauce is able to help me plate it this way 🙂
It looks delicious Danny! all the ingredients you added are so good! I LOVE avocados and mangos of course! 🙂 beautiful pictures as always my friend! 🙂
wish you a great week too!
Thank you so much Ingrid. It is a healthy salad. I should make it more often with a mixture of other ingredients like sweet potatoes or maybe pineapple 🙂
Such a stunning dish Danny!! You have such an artistic touch to your dishes and it’s very impressive…seriously fancy restaurant worthy dishes! That avocado mango sauce sounds amazing!
Aw…thank you for the compliment Brandi. You are too kind. I am now suffocating from a hazy week here in Singapore with forest fire created by our neighbouring country…but you just light up my day 🙂
Beautiful! I have my -Blog fork- at the ready 🙂

Hi Adity, thanks for the mention in your post. I’m honoured 🙂 Looking forward to hear from you again.
That dressing sounds to die for! And as always, such amazing photos. Do you take them yourself?
Thanks Rebecca. I would say it goes very well with chicken and probably other steamed white meat. Yes I took the photos myself and you will be surprised that I took all of them using my iphone 4s with minimum touch ups in photoshop. 🙂
I’m definitely making this salad this weekend. What a lovely combination of ingredient. I love how rich, yet refreshing this dressing is. What a great trick to steam the chicken and carrot with the rosemary. I’ve gotta try your trick when I make this dish. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks Amy. I am so glad you like it. I would say this is a healthy dish full of flavour and texture. Let me know how it worked for you. Can’t wait! 🙂
Sounds delicious Danny. Love the combination of chicken and mango. YUM! 🙂
Thanks Anne. I actually improvise it from an Asian menu where these two ingredients are wok fried together with seasoning. 🙂
How interesting! I think I like it salad style better. Looks yummy!

Thanks Jean. Anytime when you can make it 🙂 And I would also love to hang out in your kitchen to see you creating those beautiful bento.
Danny, i have returned from my internet vacation at exactly the right time as yesterday I bought 4 mangoes at the supermarket. I have been thinking of you and your food and promos over the last couple of months, and it’s good to be back online, making connections again. I hope you have been well.
Gabriela, it is so great to hear from you. Same here. Every time I log in to my email or wordpress, I always hope to see your name appear. This time, it came true 🙂 Just to share a good news from here. Remember my Bruce Lee promo? It just garner another Promax World Gold in L.A. two days ago. Yay! Too bad my company refuse to send me there for the awards show…
……Singapore is badly hit by haze from a big forest fire in our neighboring country. It has reached a hazardous level and I happen to fall sick just before it happen. I am still recovering from the fever, cough, headache and flu due to the lack of fresh air.
Sorry for the long update. I’m so happy that you are back and will be ‘seeing’ you again.
Oh yes, I need to confess that I have mentioned you in my zucchini pasta post. Hope you don’t mind 🙂
A HUGE congratulations for your Bruce Lee promo. It deserves it. I still show it to people!! I’m so sad to hear that they didn’t fly you to LA, and then worst luck you got ill. Sounds rough. As for mentioning me, no problemo – I love fame 😉
