Black Bean Mango Salsa

This is one of my absolute favorite snacks!  The best part about this one is that it is totally healthy and full of flavor!  This will definitely be the first appetizer at a party that will be gone!!  You can use it as an appetizer, afternoon snack, topping for fish or chicken dishes, etc... 

Black Bean Mango Salsa
2 tomatoes, diced
2 avocados, diced
2 mangos, diced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
1/2 c. onion (red, green, white- whatever you like.  I prefer red onion)
1 can black beans, rinsed
Salt & pepper, to taste

Gently stir all ingredients together and season with salt & pepper.  Depending on your taste buds, you can add a tsp. of sugar or even some red wine vinegar if you would like.  I like it naked like the recipe, but it's up to you!  You are the chef :)
Bon Appetit

  1. To make this salsa even healthier, replace your canned black beans with sprouted beans you cook yourself (you find them at Costco) and quinoa. That way you are maximizing your nutrition and it will be full of protein!! I prefer using Costco's Organic tortilla chips or Target brand's are also made with better quality oils. Check your ingredient lists!!
