Add cooked quinoa and/or avocado. Serve it with chicken, white fish or just on its own. Or who am I kidding?! Pull out a bag of healthier tortilla chips and use it as salsa. Pair it with a glass of healthy margarita (ice, tequila, club soda, lime and salt) and you’ve got your own little Mexico.

How to Make Black Bean Mango Salad

  1. Let’s talk “Mango”. Choose mango medium softness to use within 1-2 days and hard ones for later. Avoid buying very soft mango for salad as it will become a mush. My favourite are Ataulfo (champagne) mangoes and typically are sold in bulk boxes Apr-June for $7-10. They are smaller and sweeter than “regular” Tommy Atkins mango known to most North Americans.This Mango Black Bean Salad Recipe with corn, cilantro and lime is rich in protein and fiber.

  2. When it comes to chopping mango, especially Ataulfo that have thin skin, I’m “weird”. I like to peel the fruit, cut around the pit and then dice.

  3. In a large bowl, add mango, tomato, bell pepper, corn, black beans, cilantro, onion, olive oil, lime juice, cumin, salt, hot pepper flakes, and gently stir to combine. This Mango Black Bean Salad Recipe with corn, cilantro and lime is rich in protein and fiber.

  1. This is wonderfully delicious! All the ingredients blend together in wonderful, refreshing way. Thank you so much for sharing! I’m going to use it as a salsa with tilapia next time.

  2. This salad is sooo good and refreshing. Since I had a recent trip to Lebanon, I had Sumac and fresh mint on hand. I added a teaspoon of Sumac and a handful of finely chopped mint

  3. I made these last week to bring to a class potluck. I made a taco bar and made pulled pork. Everyone LOVED this salad!! Even though this time of year the mangos were a bit hard and the avocado was a bit soft, it was so delicious. My whole class thanks you for this fabulous recipe! I love how quickly it came together, too. So great!

    PS: Thank you for including the WW point value. I am a Lifetime member and lost 56 pounds on the program =) Love it!
