Go Healthy with Mangoes

Mangoes are in season and this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Mango Rice Salad is an innovative way to use them.

Featuring black beans, which contain protein as well as cancer-fighting folate and fiber, plus tomato and green onion tossed with fiber-rich brown rice, this salad adds mangoes’ wealth of beta-carotene, which turns to the antioxidant vitamin A in the body.

Peeling a fresh mango doesn’t have to be difficult: just score it lengthwise with a sharp knife a few times (front, back and sides), cutting deeply so you hit the large pit in the center. Then peel off the skin and slice flat against the pit on each side. Dice the chunks into bit-sized pieces.

Our dressing is designed to complement the mango taste with orange and lime juice, chili pepper, and cumin, oregano and cilantro – all ingredients that contain cancer-fighting phytochemicals.
