Tandoori Chicken Salad

The tandoori chicken salad is paired with red onion pickle, a tomato chutney and mango. You have to try this combination. Even if you are not a fan of tandoori chicken (like the hubby), when you have it with the pickled red onion, the sweet mango and the tomato chutney it.is.divine.

I ALWAYS make red onion pickle and a mango chutney when i make tandoori chicken and i think you will too once you try the combo. In this salad, i have just used raw mango and made a tomato chutney instead and it works so well!
