Now that summer is well on it’s way, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite summer-salad recipes. I am a HUGE fan of salad’s for dinner in the summer. When I use the grilled and cooked chicken from my freezer, these salads can come together in just a few minutes. Also, the salad dressings will last up to two weeks in the fridge, so they are nice to make up and have ready for salads throughout the month.

As I was looking through my blog recipes, I was shocked I hadn’t blogged about this Rumbi’s Island Voo-Doo Salad recipe. This copycat recipe I have been making for over 8 or 9 years now and it is a favorite! I went to Rumbi’s Island Grill long ago and got this salad. I knew we could make this salad better and had fun playing with the recipe until we got it just right. The combination of mango fruit, tomatoes, red onion, feta cheese and chicken is just plain delightful. Top the salad off with a creamy, sweet, chili dressing and you have a salad everyone will crave and love for years to come! Hope you’re having a great summer and staying out of the heat 😉
