Salsa, Black Bean, and Rice Salad

    Salsa and pepper-spiced cheese add pizzazz to this black bean and veggie salad. The 30-minute supper is healthy, too, with fiber-rich beans that can lower blood sugar. For more nutrients, make it with brown rice.

Roast Pork Salad with Ginger-Pineapple Dressing

    Pork tenderloin tops antioxidant-rich spinach and juicy pineapple. The pork is a good source of B vitamins and riboflavin -- nutrients that promote healthy red blood cells -- and it's lower in fat and calories than skinless chicken breast.
