Hi, I'm Michelle Dudash, Author of Clean Eating for Busy Families, and today I'm going to show you how to make a wild rice mango salad. So, the first thing you need to want to know is how to choose a right mango. So, you just want to give it a gentle squeeze. If it yields to gentle pressure, you know it's right. If it's still firm, just set it on the counter for a few days and then it'll become ripe. Know that the color is not an indicator of the variety. So, a little red blush on there is just a sign of that variety of mango. Alright. So, the ingredients for our salad include wild rice, light mayonnaise, sliced celery, diced chicken, diced mango, scallions, a little bit of salt and orange juice. So, the first thing we do is just add the orange juice to our mayonnaise and this makes like a little sauce for our salad. And then we just whisk that together, just until it's smooth. So, this will actually give it a little creamy type of dressing, which just pairs perfectly with this salad. And the from here, we just add it into the bowl, everything into the bowl. It could not be any easier. Alright. So, we just pour this in and we add our celery and the rest of the ingredients. Now, with this chicken, I just use rotisserie chicken. You can keep it super simple. You could use leftover chicken; you could use freshly cooked chicken; go to the grocery store, get the rotisserie, it's totally up to you, whatever is easy. Because this is a great lunch time salad especially, and here's our little pinch of salt at the end and then I of course, like to add a little fresh black ground pepper at the end, that just adds one level of additional level of flavor. And then, we just toss this altogether. So, you see it has a nice color, even with the, the simple ingredients, all of the ingredients add their own splash of color. Does this making you hungry? [Laugh]. Alright, so, there you have it, here's our wild rice mango salad. I'm Michelle Dudash, your Clean Eating Expert.
