Blueberry Mango Salad
Dinner had been pretty much cooked, using some of the mangoes, but dessert and salad were still waiting to be filled. In the hot weather, dessert is not much in demand and I decided to let it go. Salad, on the other hand was very much desired so I figured out the perfect one. I can't take credit for this, not can I give credit. I am sure, it came to mind, because of the different recipes, I had looked at. Which ones, I have no idea.....
1 cup blueberries
1 cup cut up mango
1/2 cup brown rice
1/4 teaspoon fresh chives
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
I had leftover brown rice. You can cook up 1/2 cup to use, if you are not that lucky.
Mix the rice, blueberries and mango together in a small to medium bowl.
In a really small bow, mix together the oil, lemon juice and sugar. I thought about adding a little vanilla or cinnamon or both.
Mix the dressing into the fruits. If you need more liquid, add a little orange juice (1 tablespoon) or apple juice.
It is as easy as this and we found it to be cool and refreshing and a dish to make again.
