From: Jenny Kutner


Here are two super easy summer salad recipes that can feed someone for lunch for a whole business week. Both taste great served over spinach


  • 2 small-medium ripe mangoes, cubed
  • 15 oz black beans (I usually use 1-2 cans, depending on how much I’m
  • trying to make, un-rinsed)
  • 1/2 c chopped red onion
  • 1/4 of a jalapeño, chopped
  • Chopped mint or cilantro, whichever you prefer, to taste
  • A few splashes of lime juice, to taste
  • Salt, to taste


Put everything in a bowl and refrigerate. Mix with some spinach later or
maybe make a taco. This would probably be good with grilled chicken, too,
but I don’t mess around with that stuff.

Texraeli Salad (This is my Texan take on common Israeli Salad)

  • 4 large tomatoes, chopped as finely as possible
  • 2 cucumbers, also chopped as finely as possible
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 radish, diced
  • Juice of 2 limes (or 3 if you like it tangy)
  • Plenty of salt
  • Plentier ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (eyeball it–you don’t need too much)
  • Parsley (I usually use flat-leaf)

Again, mix it all in a bowl and refrigerate. I usually also add some
halved cherry or grape tomatoes just for kicks. Eating this, especially
with spinach, will make you feel like you just did something good for your
