I tested this out with my family and it was a hit! Lots of flavor.


For the salad
1 C dry wild rice
2 not quite fully ripened mangos, cut into matchsticks
2 C jicama, cut into match sticks
2 C shredded cabbage
1/4 C chopped cilantro
Black sesame seeds for garnish
Cilantro leaves for garnish.
Cook Rice according to directions. Transfer rice to large bowl to cool.

1 small garlic clove
1/4 C packed fresh cilantro leaves
juice of 1/2 a lime
3 T Nakano mango-seasoned rice vinegar(if your local store doesn't have it, use regular Nakona rice vinegar and add 1 T mango juice)
1 1/2 T extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 T agave or honey

Combine all dressing ingredients in food processor. Blend for 30 seconds. Pour over cooled rice and toss. Refrigerate for at least an hour to chill. Once cooled, add mango, cabbage, jicama and jalapenos to the bowl and toss to combine. Garnish with extra cilantro and black sesame seeds.

Pear And Butter Lettuce Salad

This easy recipe can be a quick starter for dinner, or you can top it with raw or lightly grilled slices of goat cheese for a filling and nutritious grab-and-go lunch.


1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
teaspoon Dijon mustard
teaspoon salt
6 cups butter lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
2 red Bartlett pears, sliced
Optional: slices of goat cheese

Salad Dressing: Whisk the olive oil, vinegar, mustard and salt together for a healthy, easy recipe for salad dressing.

Salad: Arrange the leaves on a plate and top with 1 tablespoon of walnuts, several slices of pear and, if desired, some slices of goat cheese. Toss with the salad dressing. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

How about an omelet in a mug?!
Omelet in a Mug
Spray a mug with cooking spray, beat one egg in it, stir in your favorite veggies and 2 tbsp shredded cheese.

Microwave all in the mug for 1 minute, stir and then microwave for 30 seconds more. Top with hot sauce or whatever floats your boat!

-Haha, I thought this was a cool recipe. It took a while but I created a post with a bunch of 5 min. recipes, enjoy!
