1 (15.5-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup diced red, orange, or yellow bell pepper
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced, or hot sauce to taste
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups diced mango
Sea or kosher salt, to taste
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a large bowl, combine the drained and rinsed black beans, the diced bell pepper, green onions, minced jalapeno pepper, and fresh cilantro.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lime juice (and the hot sauce if you're using hot sauce instead of fresh jalapeno pepper).
Pour the olive oil and lime juice mixture over the bean mix, and gently toss together until well mixed.
Once the ingredients are well combined, carefully and gently fold in the diced mango and season lightly with sea salt or kosher salt.
You may want to taste, and adjust the seasonings, or add a bit more salt before serving.
- Use sea salt or kosher salt for the best taste, instead of regular table salt. Similarly, use the best quality olive oil you have, and use freshly squeezed lime juice instead of bottled, if possible, for the best flavor.
