Spicy Mango and Corn Rice Salad

May 15, 2017

This is a sponsored post by Lundberg Family Farms.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands I love that make this website possible.

I’ve just returned home from a few days of traveling and it’s taken me some time to adjust back to my ongoing projects, personal and work schedule.  I craved my home routine and my quick healthy meals so much that I went on a produce shopping spree.  I wanted something fresh, colorful and full of flavor but I also wanted this amazing dish to be quick and easy.  Is that too much to ask?  Coincidentally, Mother’s Day was also today.  We had no plans.  All I wanted to do is become one with my couch, relax at home, binge watch on my favorite television shows I’ve fallen behind on and enjoy a bowl-full of a satisfyingly beautiful salad.

My Mother’s Day wish came true!  I had no cooking to do.  My effortless salad only called for some some fruit and vegetable chopping and 90-seconds of microwave heating thanks to Lundberg Family Farms Organic White Jasmine rice pouches.  These new microwaveable Thai jasmine rice pouches are available in four varieties:  white, red, brown and red & white and have absolutely no additives.  This premium rice is aromatic and slightly sweet in flavor.  As always, soft and fluffy in texture.  And because this salad is so versatile, any variety of Lundberg Family Farms organic jasmine rice can be incorporated in this recipe.  The various sweet, savory and spicy flavors blend perfectly with the rice.  Making it a complete salad hearty enough to be considered a full meal.

Mango Corn Rice Salad
This spicy mango and corn rice salad can easily be served for cookouts, parrilladas, picnics and box lunches.  It tastes best at room temperature so it travels well in lunch bags and resealable containers.   Plus, it’s a great meatless and gluten-free option.  Perfect for light and quick spring and summer meals.
