  2. In a large salad bowl, add chopped romaine. Top with halved cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, diced mango and avocado, thinly sliced purple onion, 1/4 cup cilantro (and yes cilantro can be omitted if you have a cilantro aversion).

If not using dressing right away, shake well just before serving. Drizzle the salad dressing over the chicken mango avocado salad, adding it to taste.
