~ black bean & mango salad ~

This is a bright and beautiful side dish that can also be served with corn chips as a salsa! Lovely with grilled chicken or fish, it’s sure to add color and interest to your dinner table or salad buffet. I like to double this and  bring it to potlucks as a healthy alternative to some of the carb and fat laden salads out there.

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into small cubes

1 ripe tomato, seeded and chopped into small pieces

3 green onions, chopped (including the green tops)

1/2 yellow or green bell pepper, chopped fine

a handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped fine

a few dashes of Tabasco or Louisiana Hot Sauce

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

juice of one lime or 1/2 large lemon

1 teaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

Combine all in a glass bowl. Cover. Chill until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
