Tandoori Spiced Chicken Burger with Cilantro-Mint Mayo and Mango Slices

So many colours, flavours, and textures that both stand out from, and complement each other. The coolness of the cucumber, sweetness of the mango, and the bright green flavour from the mayo spread really work well against the spiciness of the chicken. It all comes together for this amazing, complex, and really well balanced sandwich.
