Our Island Spice blend bursts with tropical flavor and makes a delightful partner with the vegetables in this salad recipe. 


¾ cup uncooked rice, cooked with 1½ teaspoons Stuart's Spices Island Spice and 2¼ cups water (or cook per package directions; be sure to add the Island Spice while cooking rice to flavor the rice)
1 can black beans, well rinsed

1 red bell pepper, diced
1 bunch green scallions, chopped
Optional: 1 mango, diced
Black pepper to taste

 cup olive oil
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
Juice from 1 lime, about 1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon Stuart's Spices Island Spice

Toss the cooked and cooled rice with beans, corn, pepper, scallions and mango. Generously pour dressing over salad, to taste. Mix well.
