5 minute avocado and mango rice salad

This avocado and rice salad can be made in only five minutes and is so easy that even my kids could make it.

I am always looking for a convenient, quick and healthy meal solution so when I was introduced to Minute® Ready to Serve Rice I was pretty excited. This rice is fully cooked and all you have to do is heat it up in the microwave for 60 seconds. There is no cleanup required as you can eat right out of the cup and you don’t have to worry about portion control as it comes pre portioned. You can take this to work or prepare it when you don’t have much time.

This recipe is delicious and so easy to make and it’s very versatile as you can also add some cooked chicken or tofu if you are vegetarian and make it into a complete meal.

5 minute avocado and mango rice salad This recipe came out great with the combination of the mango and freshness of the avocado and cilantro and I still can’t believe this was ready in just 5 minutes.  Because today we where planning on going out to the beach I put the mango and avocado rice salad in mason jars and tied a disposable wooden fork to each mason jar. We just threw these in our cooler for a easy, healthy and delicious picnic snack.

Minute Ready to Serve Rice can be found at your favorite retailer. I bought it at Publix and I stocked up because Minute Rice can be used in so may ways. I often use it as a side along with veggies and protein for the perfect healthy and filling meal that is ideal before working out but you can also eat it for breakfast, a snack or even dessert. The White Rice or maybe even the Jasmin Rice variety would be perfect to make a quick and delicious rice pudding!  You can find hundreds of Minute Rice recipe ideas at minuterice.com.
