Mango Salsa:

2 mangoes, skinned and diced

1 large onion, diced

1 lime, juiced

2 to 3 tomatoes, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients by gently stirring with a wooden spoon or plastic spatula until thoroughly mixed. Set aside to let flavors meld. Spoon the salsa over the duck pieces, or serve as a garnish on the side.

Wild Rice:

1 box wild rice

1 red pepper, seeded and diced

1 onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil

Prepare the wild rice according to the directions on the box. In a medium skillet, saute the pepper, onion, and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until vegetables are tender, being careful not to let the garlic burn. When the rice is fully cooked, add the sauteed vegetables to the rice, and stir to combine.

Vegetable Medley:

Olive oil, for sauteing

1 red pepper, seeded and chopped

1/4 pound mushrooms, cleaned and chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

30 string beans, trimmed

2 to 3 carrots, thinly sliced

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add enough olive oil to thinly coat the bottom of the pan, and let oil heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the pepper, mushrooms, and garlic to the pan, and saute until the vegetables are almost tender. Add the beans and carrots to the pan, and cook until all of the vegetables are slightly tender and the flavors have combined. Serve with the Blackened Duck and Wild rice.
