Tasty Tuesday: Fruity Breakfast Salad

Pin It Now!

Today I am starting something new!  It is called Tasty Tuesday.  Each Tuesday, I will share some of my family's favorite recipes.  I will keep the recipes simple with inexpensive, family-friendly ingredients.

Today I am going to start with one of our favorite salads. I am calling it a breakfast salad, but it can really be served anytime. Hope you enjoy it!

2 cups rice, cooked (can be brown or white)
1 cup plain yogurt
1 mango, cut in cubes
10-15 red grapes, halved
2-3 Tbsn honey (more or less to taste)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mix the first five ingredients together (add a dash of salt now if no salt was added to rice while cooking). Put salad in refrigerator until ready to serve. Before serving, sprinkle with 1/2 cup nuts.  Enjoy!

This recipe is extremely versatile and I have made the following substitutions many times: peaches, nectarines, green grapes, and pecans.  Also, you may want to note that the nuts will get soggy after a day or two, so if the salad is going to be around for a few days, sprinkle the nuts on the individual servings, rather than on the salad itself.

p.s. This recipe (#72) and other great ideas can be found on Frugally Sustainable's Wednesday Blog Hop.
